New Funding Fee changes for Rural Development loans

15 11 2011

On Oct 1st, 2011 the funding fee for Rural Development loans decreased from 3.5% to 2%.  But there will now be an annual charge of .30%.  This fee will continue for the life of the loan.  This is not technically called mortgage insurance, so it will not be bound by the same terms.  This means it will not drop off once you pay down to 80% of the original appraised value.

RD refinances will feature a 1% funding fee instead of the new 2% fee.

Over 90% of the land in Oklahoma is rural, so check the link below to see if your home is eligible:

And contact me to see if you qualify for Rural Development financing.

I look forward to helping you become one of the Oklahomans who I’ve helped save over $20 Million dollars just this year on their homes.
