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
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!!

Experience with Michael at Shoreline
When I purchased my home last summer, it was the first time I would do so on my own. I had minimal experience with the paperwork and the overall process. The patience extended to me by Michael Minkoff was truly amazing. He walked me through every step of the way. He was knowledgeable, professional, and downright kind. I was and I am very grateful to him for his assistance. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Minkoff. Anybody who does business with him will not regret the choice. There are many companies out there, but the knowledge and service extended by Mr. Minkoff by far exceeds the others in the same industry.

Michael is the best, hands down!
Michael went above and beyond to communicate and help us through this process. Everything Michael told us was accurate and there were no surprises. I will never use anyone else when financing another property in the future! Thank you Mike!

Michael is the Best!!
We were looking at so many options for our Refi – 15 Year vs. 30 Year, combining two mortgages into one. We tried working with our bank, but became very frustrated at the inflexibility. We decide to talk to Michael because he had helped us so much with our first mortgage almost 10 years ago. Michael gave us the pros and cons of every option we discussed, and was always open to running multiple scenarios for us. When we finally chose the right financing plan for our needs, Michael guided us through every step of the way.
Henry Jost Fort Myers, FL June 7, 2015
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.

Superb Service and Sound Advice
This was my second refinance with Michael Minkoff and Shoreline and I would not deal with anyone else. He offers great guidance and patience through the refinance process. He gets the job done quickly and will smooth any wrinkles in the process. He is always available to answer any questions or concerns before, during and after the refinance. His professionalism is unparalleled! I highly recommend his services.

Shoreline Morgage – Michael Minkoff
I worked with Michael to refinance my home. He made the process so easy, smooth and helped me every step of the way. He made this experience so much easier then I could imagine. I will recommend his service to anyone I know that needs a mortgage and I will definitely use him again in the future. Thank you for everything!

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.

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.
Erin Fromm Plantation, FL June 14, 2015
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.
Peter Amendola Key Largo, FL June 24, 2015
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.

Testimonial for Michael Minkoff
My fiance and I purchased our first home last year and we didn’t understand anything about the mortgage process. We met with one broker and we were still confused. We were advised to meet with Michael Minkoff. Michael is extremely knowledgeable and attentive which made both of us feel so comfortable. Everything went so smoothly, and he locked us in at the lowest possible interest rate. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Shoreline Mortgage made us feel like we were one of their top clients.
David Houle Parkland, Fl June 7, 2015
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.
Mike Amendola Deerfield Beach, FL June 13, 2015
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!!

Maylene R. Miami, Fl August 23, 2017
I have dealt with Michael Minkoff in the past. And I found him to be every professional, honest and very forthcoming. This is my third opportunity to have dealt with him on the purchase of Homes and condominiums. And Michael has never disappointed me in any way, during the procedures and purchases of any properties. Over the years I have thought of Michael as more of a friend than a business acquaintance. Michael performs his task over and above its competitors with ease. You guys have a real gem on your hands... Michael Minkoff THE BEST definitely 5 stars.

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!
