The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is giving homeowners and buyers until Oct. 4 to lock in a low monthly insurance premium on FHA loans, according to Gibran Nicholas of the CMPS Institute, which trains and certifies mortgage bankers and brokers.

After that, the monthly insurance premiums on FHA loans will increase by over 63 percent.

A homebuyer purchasing a $200,000 home using a $193,000 FHA mortgage before Oct. 4 would pay an insurance premium of $88.46 per month. If the same homebuyer waits until after, the insurance premium would jump to $148.01.
