HUD suspends FHA mortgage insurance premium cut | 2017-01-20 | HousingWire

It doesn’t affect the luxury markets as much, as most buyers are paying cash, or a hefty down payment. The overall effect is about a $10,000 reduction in buying power, if you are looking at FHA loans on your next home purchase.

HUD sent out an announcement just an hour after President Trump was sworn in on Friday, stating that the cuts have been suspended indefinitely.

The suspension is effective immediately.
