That Business Show 06-11-2015


#ThatBusinessShow today focused primarily on Real Estate Mortgages and tips as I interviewed Ryan Takieddine, VP Retail Sales and Mortgage Consultant with MI Mutual Mortgage.  Ryan is a graduate of the University of South Florida with a degree in Finance and has extensive experience in the Mortgage business.  Ryan was an award winning top producer with Diamond Residential Mortgage in 2008 to 2014 and joined MI Mutual in 2015 as their new Vice President of Regional Sales.

Ryan and I discussed many mortgage topics including the FHA 203k loan, a loan product in which you, the borrower, can finance the cost of repairs inside your loan given you will be owner occupying the home.  With interest rates at record lows on top of the low down payment requirements for an FHA loan, now is a great time to purchase a new home.  Credit challenged borrowers are also encouraged to apply; HUD, who is responsible for the insuring of FHA loans, is very forgiving on borrowers and works to encourage home ownership.  We also touched on VA loans and the $100 down program available on HUD owned homes in Florida whereby anyone using an FHA loan can replaced the standard 3.5% down payment with a mere $100 down.  You can find the available inventory of HUD homes that qualify for this program at  MI Mutual is the fastest growing lender in Central Florida and has a number of resources available to borrowers and Ryan encourages you to contact him so he can help get you into a home today.  Learn more at and Ryan can be reached at 813-493-5626 or email at for more information!
