  1. Even if you missed the deadline for credit qualifying under the old FHA guidelines in regards to the Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium and monthly Mortgage Insurance Premium, don’t be scared to move forward with your home purchase or home refinance with an FHA insured home loan.

    Compared to other home loans, FHA insured home loans are still a great program with the low down payment requirements for a home purchase and high loan-to-value limits for home refinances.
