FHA’s Mortgage Insurance Premium for the Reverse Mortgage…Why do I need it? The Mortgage insurance premium (MIP not PMI) is mandatory on Reverse Mortgages and it’s the main reason the closing costs are as high as they are.  Below is why it is a “necessary evil” so to speak, and is a huge benefit to the Reverse Mortgage borrower and their heirs.   MIP: This guarantees that no one can kick you out of your home, no one can ask you to make payments (until you turn 150 years old, ha ha ha, seriously), and your mortgage amount owed can never be more than your value.  This means if there is a loss when you sell or when your heirs sell, FHAs insurance covers it.  Hence the term, the balance can never be higher than the value.   If you want more info you can see the official links below.  I also...

    Leaving a voicemail message is like making a short public speech with a distinct objective. Here are some tips to help you convey the right message to your audience:          Plan Your Message: Consider the points you want to make and jot down a few key words. Limit the points to one or two per message.  Get to the Point: A stream of consciousness approach doesn't work. Begin with a purpose. "The reason I am calling is..."  Be Brief: The Octel voicemail system will allow users to leave a three-four minute message (depending on which plan you select) but a voicemail message that is more than one minute is TOO LONG. Try to respect people's time and aim for a 15-30 second message.  Speak Slowly: The listener needs time to process information and write it down. Be sure to pause as you s...

Mortgage Bankers of Florida is a Full Mortgage Lender.  A few years back I was between mortgage companies when I received a call from someone by the name of Michael “Mike” Camus.  He is the owner of MCM Holdings, a Wholesale Mortgage Lender dba Mortgage Bankers of Florida, and was trying to recruit me to work for him.  I wasn’t interested because I had just committed to another company, but we kept in touch over the next couple of years. Mike invited me yet again to join his office in June 2008 and made me an offer to get leads, which no one in the industry was offering at the time.  This was the best move I could have made.  Had it not been for joining his company, I don’t know if I would still be in the mortgage business. Mike, Hader “Moodi” Mahmoodi, and I took this program called th...
