FHA Loan Basics

FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP)

MIP is short for Mortgage Insurance Premium. The FHA requires homebuyers using an FHA loan to pay both a one-time upfront MIP and an annual MIP, no matter the loan term or down payment.

The upfront MIP is typically 1.75% of the loan amount and may be financed into the loan, as shown in the FHA loan calculator. However, the annual MIP can be a bit more confusing.

The annual MIP ranges from .45% to 1.05% of the loan amount and changes depending on loan term and down payment. Our FHA loan calculator updates the annual MIP based on your selections.

FHA Loans and Credit

A large advantage of the FHA loan is the lenient credit requirements compared to other mortgage options. FHA loans have a credit score minimum of just 500, but a homebuyer will need at least a 580 to take advantage of the 3.5 percent down payment.

Typically, conventional loans require a score of 660, while USDA loans require a 640 and VA requires a 620 or higher.

Credit score benchmarks for FHA loans will vary lender.
