On May 20th, 2009, President Obama urged homeowners to refinance, and signed the Helping Families Save Their Home Act:

"The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act advances the goals of our existing housing plan by providing assistance to responsible homeowners and preventing and avoiding foreclosures…This bill removes those hurdles, getting folks into sustainable and affordable mortgages and, more importantly, keeping them in their homes. And it expands the reach of our existing housing plans for homeowners..."
~President Barack Obama


Where do these FHA benefits come from?

With an FHA insured home loan, the FHA insures the lender against the loss of the principle in case the borrower fails to meet the terms of the mortgage. That benefits you the borrower. The qualifying standards and terms of the FHA loan are different and, at Mortgage Banking Associates, our experts are always happy to give you a free consultation.


Is an FHA loan right for you?

  • Are you a first-time home buyer? You might be eligible for an $8000 home credit.
  • Are you trying to get out of an adjustable home rate? You might be able to refinance for a lower, 30-year fixed rate.
  • Are you trying to keep monthly rates down? You might be able to keep your mortgage insurance as low as half of a percent, much lower than conventional loan mortgage insurance. The savings are significant. With an FHA loan, your credit history can be lower than the requirements that conventional loans might call for. For more information, discuss your credit history, rates, and pre-approvals with Mortgage Banking Associates.

Even More Benefits

At this time, we are seeing some of the lowest rates on the market. We are getting some of the lowest fixed rates and when you compare to many sub-prime rate mortgages that are still out there, how can you lose? These adjustable rates are hurting many home owners, as the adjustable rates can suddenly jump, sending monthly payments higher without warning. There are no pre-payment penalties with an FHA loan compared to prepayment penalties with an ARM loan. If you compare to a conventional loan which requires better credit and a better down payment, let Mortgage Banking Associates compare and show you how to get an FHA loan. Let us show you the options. Don't take a chance with an out-of-state lender when you can have someone serving you right here in Florida – serving Ocala, St. Petersburg, Bradenton, and beyond!
