Overall, FHA loans provide more flexibility in credit, income, and equity/down payment requirements, and are great alternatives to conventional loans. They do include a Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP), as well as monthly mortgage insurance, but FHA loans still enable many homeowners who wouldn’t qualify for conventional financing to purchase or refinance a home.
Why get an FHA loan?
Put just 3.5% down
Easier to qualify for
Fixed-rate and adjustable rate loans are available
Credit scores as low as 550
Down-payment and closing costs can be a gift from family
Client Testimonials – What Our Customers are Saying
I worked with Michael to buy a home in Miami. From my first interaction with Michael to the last moment of the closing, Michael was extraordinarily responsive, attentive and kind. Michael is the consummate professional. He is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about the entire real estate industry. I give him my highest recommendation and would not hesitate to use him again in the future.

Mike Minkoff did an outstanding job with my two refinances at the same time! I asked many questions and came up with multiple scenarios and Mike was more than happy to answer everything. He went above and beyond and he knows his stuff.
I would suggest using him again without hesitation.

Michael is the only Mortgage Broker you should work with!
Our friends recommended Michael Minkoff to help us secure a mortgage. It's our first house so we never had any experience with the loan process. From the very first phone call I knew we were in the best hands possible!! Michael took the time and explained very clearly about the different options. He took care of every single detail and went above and beyond to bring us to closing in less than one month. During the loan process, he guided us in a very professional manner and kept us updated on the progress.
The whole process was very quick and smooth and we felt very comfortable throughout it. It was a true pleasure to work with Michael!! I'm sure we will work with him again in the future and will highly recommend him for others. Thank you Michael, you are the best!!

Shoreline Mortgage is excellent
The service and personal attention we received from Michael Minkoff was exceptional and beyond what we were expecting! His knowledge of the local and national market and his commitment in finding us the best rate helped us in our search for our dream home. As first time home buyers everything was new to us and the most important thing we wanted was someone we could trust to give us the best advice. After patiently going through every figure and explaining what each payment was for, Michael made sure we were comfortable and sure of our decisions. He was there for us every step of the way. I'm glad we chose his services and would recommend him to anyone buying a home.

I have used Michael for a mortgage and refinance on two properties. He is very knowledgeable and quick with responses. Both went perfectly and his numbers were spot on. I even referred him to family and friends, all of whom had a great experience. I plan to use Shoreline Mortgage for future investments.

Michael is the best
I have worked with Michael twice and he is a true professional. He takes the time to ensure that his clients understand the entire process of closing on a mortgage and is always willing to explain things until the client is comfortable. Patient, kind and understanding - Michael is exactly the type of person you want working on your behalf. I would never work with anyone else!
David Gerhart Jacksonville, Fl June 8, 2015
Our good friend recommended Michael and he helped us to secure a mortgage on our second house in Miramar, FL. We closed our house right on time without any delays. Michael took care of every single detail in the loan approval process and explained very clearly about the different options that was available to us. He guided us in such a professional manner that we didn’t have to worry about anything. He was very prompt and kept us updated throughout the process which went very smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with him and will highly recommend him to our friends too. Thank you Michael!

Great experience for the second time
This is the second house we've bough with Michael's help and he made it a painless process yet again. He is always on top of all of the paperwork needed to buy a house, it made it so easy on us. He is professional and such a pleasure to work with.

The Ideal Experience
Throughout the entire process of purchasing my first home, Michael gave me the kind of service and guidance that made me feel as though my needs were his highest priority, and sometimes even his only priority. I certainly felt as though Michael made a significant effort to establish trust and a personal rapport with me, which is critically important for me when dealing in financial matters. As it relates to knowledge of the industry and available products, Michael's level of expertise is yet another reason to feel as though your needs are in the best hands. I have already recommended Michael to three people, and plan to continue doing so whenever a friend, colleague, or family member is considering buying a home or refinancing.
Justin Vizaro Miami, FL June 15, 2015
Working with Michael was the best decision we made. He was helpful and informative through the entire process. There were nights that he was up sending me emails about how to quickly repair my credit score, while most people would be sleeping. His dedication to customer service and finding the best mortgage to fit his clients needs is exactly why we will be calling Michael the next time we are purchasing a house.
David Long Orlando, FL August 23, 2017
Professional, Responsive, Easy
I have used Mike at Shoreline many times. I keep going back because there is noone better to work with. I have used others but they simply cannot touch the personalized and professional service that Mike and Shoreline provide. I am a client for life.
David Templer North Miami Beach May 16, 2016
Complex made easy
Michael Minkoff was great. He worked through all the different ways we could structure our loan and helped us find the one that was absolutely best for our situation. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond to us throughout the process and yet I never felt rushed, as he made sure we understood everything happening throughout the process. I have been and will continue to recommended him to others I know looking for a mortgage.
Berry Long Longwood, FL August 23, 2017
It was our first time to buy a house. I have zero experiment, Michael Minkoff did all paperwork for us. It was a painless experience, we are so luck to meet you, Michael! Thank you!

Fantastic Mortgage Loan experience
Michael Minkoff and Shoreline Mortgage proved to be honest, efficient, motivated, knowledgeable and gave us a great rate with a timely closing. I will definitely use their services again and can say that I am completely happy with their services. I was referred to them by a friend and now am happy to pass on my wonderful experiences with others!

Exceptional experience. I never even had to go to an office or meet Michael in person. E signature and good to go. In 3 hours my refinance was secure.
Jeffrey Giordano Miami December 7, 2016
If you don’t work with Michael now, You’ll hate yourself later.
I can honestly say Michael Minkoff made my first home buying experience a very pleasant one. From our first conversation he explained each and every option that was available to me and I never felt pressured into any decision. My phone call and email communications were handled in a professional and timely manner. All in all I really couldn't imagine my home buying process being any easier. Even now that the deal is done I would still feel 100% comfortable calling Michael with any questions. He extended his expertise beyond the scope of the business deal and I look forward to contacting Michael for my next home purchase. Thanks for everything Michael! Our hats off to you!!
