Some great new on Mortgages

HUD announced yesterday that the monthly mortgage insurance premium for FHA has decreased effective with all closings on or after January 27, 2017.

For 30 year fixed mortgages, the monthly premiums are dropping by 25 basis points, from .85% to .60%.  This can equal big savings over the life of the loan, for example:  On a $200,000 loan amount, this equates to a monthly savings of approximately $50 per month.  This also increases purchasing power!

To read the entire HUD announcement, please click on the following link:

Remember, Our lender can offer Mortgages for FHA loans down to a 580 credit score when most banks require a 620 or 640 score!   Call James Jestes today to be put in touch with a lender that can help you purchase your new home!



I look forward to hearing from you!

Friday Nights at the Beach and Bandshell

If your free on any Friday night in the summer you have to bring your lawn chairs and come listen to the live bands at the Bandshell. Its Free and always a lot of fun.

Most people just sit out at the beach and enjoy the music. Last week I took the whole family and we listened to a great Santana tribute band. Tonight is the band “Are Friends Electric”

You can see all of the upcoming events at The Daytona Bandshells website.


Here is a video of the beach I did last friday!  Enjoy and I hope to see you there tonight!
