An FHA loan is a government-backed conforming loan insured by the Federal Housing Administration. FHA loans have lower credit and down payment requirements for qualified homebuyers. For instance, the minimum required down payment for an FHA loan is only 3.5% of the purchase price. The FHA mortgage calculator includes additional costs in the estimated monthly payment. Such as, a one-time, upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) and annual premiums paid monthly.
This FHA loan calculator provides customized information based on the information you provide. But, it assumes a few things about you. For example, that you’re buying a single-family home as your primary residence. This calculator also makes assumptions about closing costs, lender’s fees and other costs, which can be significant.
Estimated monthly payment and APR example: A $265,375 base loan amount with a 30-year term at an interest rate of 6.250% with a down payment of 3.5% and no discount points purchased would result in an estimated principal and interest monthly payment of $1,663 over the full term of the loan with an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 7.478%.1
