Denver Real Estate Agency Warns New Mortgage Fee Rule Proposal Can Penalize Good Credit Homebuyers

Westminster, Colorado -

Frank Duran Homes (Team Duran in Westminster), a real estate agency based in Westminster, CO, is bringing to light that a new mortgage fee rule proposal can penalize good credit homebuyers. The real estate agency serving Denver and other nearby areas is talking about the new schedule of home financing fees announced in January 2023 by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which oversees home financing giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

This new pricing for home financing has resulted in criticisms that it will result into higher fees for home buyers with higher credit scores, which implies that they will subsidizing home buyers with lower credit scores. These changes only apply for those who have conventional home financing, which means those who obtained their funding backed by the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA), Federal Housing Administration (FHA), or the USDA, are not affected.

It is important to clarify that those who have higher credit score will still be paying less in fees when compared to those who have lower credit scores. It’s just that the reward for higher credit has narrowed for some home buyers. This means that credit score still continues to be the most essential driver for a home buyer’s home financing rate. The new schedule of fees means that some home buyers with high credit scores are getting less of a break compared to the previous fees.

The adjustment in the home financing fees is intended to increase the revenue of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and thus improve their financial soundness. The FHFA has been trying to balance a need to bolster the finances of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with the wants of home buyers. With the most recent adjustment in fees, a home buyer is still rewarded to keeping a high credit score and paying a larger down payment although the difference compared to those with lower credit scores has be reduced.
