FHA mortgage rates are often lower than rates for conventional mortgages. However, a lower interest rate does not always equate to a lower monthly payment. FHA mortgage insurance will increase your payments and the overall cost of the loan, even if the base rate is lower than for other loan types. Looking at annual percentage rate (APR) can be helpful in determining the ‘true’ cost of a loan, since APR accounts for fees as well as interest.
