2015 USDA Rural Housing Guarantee Fee and Annual MI for Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Development Loans

Kentucky USDA Guarantee Fee and Annual MI



All USDA loans current charge 2.75% for the Guarantee Fee on ALL loans regardless of purchase or refinance. The Annual MI or Monthly Factor is .50 basis points


For example on a $100,000 Kentucky USDA Property with no money down financing the following USDA Guarantee fees and annual mi would be as follows:

$100,000.00 loan amount x .02% = $2750 Guarantee Fee. The total loan amount would be $102,750.00 with the guarantee fee being financed into the loan over 30 years.

The annual monthly mortgage insurance premium would be calculated as follows:
$100,000 x .0050 = $500 a year or $41.66 a month. This annual mi fee to USDA is for life of loan now.


The Kentucky USDA Rural Development has a method of determining a household's income by using two formulas.
Two Step Formula:
1.) The burden of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance (PITI) must be 29% less than the gross monthly income.
2.) The total monthly debts must be 41% or less than the gross monthly income.
The USDA is not limited to first-time homebuyers. The loans were set up to assist eligible homebuyers despite the fact that they own a home before or not.
