How to calculate FHA monthly MI payment

calculatorHow we calculate mortgage insurance (MI) on FHA loans to figure out a monthly MI payment

 

What exactly is PMI or MI?  You can view PMI a simple explanation for more clarification.

 

What you will need:

A standard calculator

A piece of paper/pen

A little patience

An understanding of MI factor 

An understanding of UFMIP


Here is the formula - 

Loan amount multiplied by to monthly MI factor divided by 12 equals your monthly MI payment.

MI factor is the number used to calculate the sum.  FHA rules change but as of now these are the guidelines.

If you have a down payment less than 5% then your monthly MI factor is 1.15   If you have 5% or greater down payment your monthly MI factor is 1.10

UFMIP is a one time payment to FHA. It stands for Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium.  Easy way to think of it is similar to buying or leasing a car.  You put a down payment and then have monthly payments. UFMIP is equal to 1% of the loan amount.

Hypothetical scenario:

Purchase price $300,000 - 3.5% down payment ($10,500) = $289,500 loan amount

Apply UFMIP - Loan amount $289,500 X 1% (2,895) = $292,395.  This is your new loan amount. 

Base loan amount - $289,500 X 1.15 = 3,329.25.  Divide by 12 = $277.44

The monthly FHA MI payment in this scenario would be $277.44 per month.

If the down payment is 5% or greater then use 1.10 instead of1.15
