I have had quite a few questions lately on how the changes made in January to lower mortgage insurance actually effect your buying power (the amount you are approved for through a bank to purchase a home).
Example: In January if you were pre approved for $205,000 and have done nothing to improve/lower your credit score, your buying power is now $220,000. That is a $15,000 difference, and you didn't have to do anything. Pretty Aweome! If you have been house shopping online via redfin, zillow, or windermere, you know that $15,000 makes a substantial difference in the houses you are looking at.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more about the hows/whys and see how your buying power has changed since January. I am happy to help!
