New FHA rules will allow first-time homebuyers the chance to reduce their fees for mortgage insurance. It's not Christmas, so there is a small price to pay, but in this case, it will only cost you time. If you participate in this three part education program, FHA HAWK (Homeowners Armed With Knowledge), you can get up to .5 percent savings on your mortgage insurance. This adds up to $9800 on a 30-year loan for a $180,000 mortgage. The cost of the class will vary between $300-$500 but it will be subsidized or reimbursed by the FHA. The program starts on October 1.

DREAMING OF BUYING A HOME? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU
"Michael is, by far, the best realtor I have worked with. He is extremely proactive in taking steps to both find you the right home, but more importantly help you get it. Living remotely, Michael managed all the "leg work" required around inspections, obtaining elevation certificates, and obtaining general information needed to close. Michael was always readily available and provides very quick answers to questions. He stayed on top of the closing process and ensured I knew what to do and by when. This was very helpful never having purchased a home in Florida. Additionally, Michael took the time to show me the local area and key points of interest. I highly recommend using Michael as your realtor!"
