What is PMI? Do I need it?
PMI is Private Mortgage Insurance. It is a type of mortgage insuranace you might be required to pay for if you have a conventional loan. PMI is arranged by the lender and provided by private insurance companies. PMI is usually required when you have a conventional loan and make a down payment of less than 20% of the home's purchase price. If you're refinancing with a conventional loan and your equity is less than 20% of the value of your home, PMI is also usually required. PMI can be bought out or built into your loan to avoid it all together. Contact us to find out how.
