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?

Indeed, being able to do your part, even in the slightest of ways, can be quite gratifying.

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...
