Update on FHA mortgage changes

November 5th, 2010 · No Comments · fha mortgages and first time home buyers, mortgages in michigan, tips for home buyers

Over the last year I’ve tried to keep my readers up to date on changes that were coming for FHA mortgages and what it means for future home buyers in my Macomb County area.

One of the gentlemen that I look to for advice when it comes to FHA mortgages is Jeff Belonger.  He is a highly knowledgeable mortgage professional based in New Jersey.  (Why would I seek advice from a New Jersey mortgage lender?  Because he knows his stuff.  BTW, he can also help you with your mortgage, whether you are in New Jersey or Michigan.  That’s the beauty of fax, Fedex, and email.)

An area of concern through all of the FHA changes that were proposed was the lowering allowable sellers concessions (closing costs that the seller can pay for the purchaser) from 6% to 3%.  That didn’t end up happening, and I am grateful that it didn’t.  Most of my home buyers rely on that full 6% of help to obtain their homes, and to cut it by 1/2 would be a true hardship for them.

Jeff wrote an excellent article that highlights the changes that have happened, the myths that are still being talked about as truths, and rumors that just won’t quit.  I highly suggest anyone who is considering purchasing a home read Jeffs article, as well as bookmark his blog for future reading and reference.
