Fannie Mae will start an increase on their fees

If there is ever a time to take advantage of low mortgage rates and lower fees now is the time. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will start a new fee increase that will effect millions on their home loans, payments will go up or buyers will have to come out of pocket to secure the loan.

Here is the article from USA Today that talks more about it.

For the first time since 2009, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are raising risk fees they charge lenders on loans they buy for resale to investors. The mortgage giants are also adding risk fees to more loans extended to people with stellar credit. To avoid a fee or to get a discount, most borrowers will need FICO scores of 740 or better and down payments of 25% or more. Lenders could absorb the cost, but most are expected to add it to loan costs within days, if they haven’t already, says Cameron Findlay, LendingTree economist. The increases affect most loans with longer than 15-year terms sent to Freddie starting March 1 and to Fannie on April 1.

For example, a buyer of a $200,000 house who has a 700 FICO credit score and 20% down payment will pay $1,600 for the Fannie risk fee vs. $1,200 before. If the borrower’s score is 680, the fee will be $2,800. Borrowers can pay fees upfront, or lenders will price them into interest rates.

While not huge, the new fees are notable in that they’re being added to more loans to borrowers with higher credit scores.

FICOs generally go from 300 to 850; the median is 711. With few exceptions, risk fees hadn’t applied before to borrowers with FICO scores of 740 or above.

Now, they’ll face the smallest fee, 0.25% of the loan amount, if they put down less than 25%. “For the first time, these fees apply to virtually everybody,” says Keith Gumbinger of mortgage research firm HSH.com. For single-family home buyers and standard refinances, the fees will hit 88% of the borrower categories set by Fannie and Freddie, up from 70%, he says.

Freddie and Fannie announced the changes last year. They’re “intended to more accurately reflect changing risks in the housing market,” says Amy Bonitatibus of Fannie Mae. Before the change, loans to borrowers with 740-plus FICO scores paid risk fees on some loans, such as cash-out refinances, says Freddie Mac spokesman Brad German.

Freddie says the increases will have a “nominal effect” on affordability. A 0.25% fee would add less than $10 to the monthly payment on a 5%, 30-year fixed-rate loan for $200,000, it says.

Yet, higher fees will make it harder for some consumers to qualify, Findlay says. For those that do, the fees aren’t likely to scare them off, given today’s low interest rates, he adds.
