Fast and easy FHA mortgage calculator for Pennsylvania

FHA logoHow much money can you borrow with an FHA house loan, and how much will your monthly mortgage payment be when you include in real estate taxes and homeowner's insurance? The Pennsylvania FHA loan calculator will compute the monthly mortgage payment, including the monthly mortgage insurance premium, and estimate the FHA mortgage amount with the financing fee (MIP).
A 3.5 percent down payment is required for an FHA home loan. That's just $3,500 for a $100,000 house... and the FHA down payment may be "given" by qualified donors! Did you know that the property seller may be able to cover part of the closing expenses (see below)?  If you find a mistake, have a remark, or wish to make a purchase, please send me an email.  Last updated 1/2021.
