September 2019

Message from FAMP President Gino Moro


Dear FAMP Members:

September has been a very busy month for FAMP. I attended the National Conference where Brian Montgomery, Commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), provided some updates including the LTV changes for FHA cash-out refinance loans as well as single unit condominium approvals. He also announced that FHA would be investing $20 Million into updating their technology this year.

Following his presentation, I was able to speak with Brian Montgomery over lunch with a few of our industry leaders.  He is enthusiastic about FHA’s role and clearly demonstrated that he does have his ear to the ground and is aware of the needs of today’s housing market. It was an incredible opportunity and it is reassuring to know that FHA wants feedback and is supporting homeowners and our industry. I want to extend a special thanks to Roy DeLoach for his efforts Lobbying for the Mortgage industry and for facilitating the meeting with our FHA Commissioner.

As we have officially entered the Autumn Season, it is a reminder that it is time to complete the eight hours of NMLS-Approved continuing education (CE) required annually by the SAFE Act. Please note that NMLS has published the following expectations related to your licensing renewal:

This month ended with FAMP’s  3-day annual retreat and planning session. I want to thank our Committee Chairs and our Executive Committee for all their hard work and the great ideas which we are incorporating into our Agenda this year.
