Opinions and Advice Top Tips on Moving from a House to a Condo
Calling all empty-nesters, downsizers and warm-weather seekers! We know how appealing Miami’s beaches, balmy breezes and year-round good vibes can be. Couple that with some common life transitions, whether your kids are off to college or you’re looking to have an easier lifestyle, and you’ve got the perfect recipe to transition from a home to a condo. So if you’re just thinking about moving from a house to a condo, or have already decided, here are a few useful pointers. Who Says You Have to Downsize? The first thing that often comes to mind when you sell your house and decide to move to a condo is “Will I have to downsize?” In Miami, it may not be all that necessary to go smaller if you consider some of the many expansive, ultra-spacious condos that have sprung up.

New 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami, more FHA Loan Options
Real Estate News New 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami, more FHA Loan Options
The news for first-time condo or home buyers wanting low down payments keeps getting better. The new 2020 FHA loans have higher limits that, in combination with a law revision that went into effect last October, allow buyers to purchase a new condo with just 3.5 - 10% down, depending on credit score, and sometimes more flexible loan terms than conventional loans.  The revised policy allows for certain individual condo units to be eligible for FHA loans, even if the condo building is not FHA approved.  FHA loans are federally insured mortgages, and because they are insured, lenders provide excellent rates for first-time buyers and those with no or less-than-perfect credit histories. What’s even better is that the FHA loan amounts have increased. Miami-Dade’s 2020 FHA maximum loan limit for single families (including condos) has gone up to $373,750 from last year’s $356,500, almost a 5% increase over last year. 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami-Dade County (includes areas...
