Your rate is based on your credit score. If your score is 640 and above you will not pay a higher rate. We have numerous FHA lenders (GMI is a banker) that offer credit scores as low as 580 on FHA mortgages. When the score is below the 640 there may be a slight adjustment in the rate. As for the mortgage insurance you will have to pay the mortgage insurance for 5 years. The mortgage must be a rate and term meaning that you will only be able to pay off your existing mortgage and the closing cost as the loan to value is 91.66%. A cash out would require a 85% loan to value.
