Yes.. but it's not a "conversion", it's called a refinance.. your home will have to be appraised, and you would be subject to today's interest rates, and it's a fully qualifying refinance, so all the paperwork you had to provide when you first got your loan, will have to be provided for the new loan. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. 480-287-5714 WilliamAcres.com

You can refinance into a conventional loan. You should make sure that the payments are less without the MI at the current rate, though chances are that it is less.

Yes, you just "refinance". As others have mentioned, there's no conversion available. Also, you cannot "streamline" refinance. That means when you apply for financing an appraisal will be required. With conventional, you should be able to pay off your mortgage, plus cover any/all closing costs by rolling those in to the loan. That's providing you have the equity to be able to do so.

Jeannine -- when the balance on your mortgage compared to the value of your home (based on your purchase price) reaches 78%, your PMI will drop off. This is generally in about 5-8 years depending on the down payment you used to purchase it. You will definitely want to check with a local, licensed mortgage professional to make sure that you have the needed equity, and that a refinance into a conventional loan will eliminate the Mortgage Insurance, and that your interest rate will also move in a positive manner from where you are, before you commit to doing the refinance.

If your FHA loan was obtained 5 years ago, and you have 22% in equity, you may be able to call your current lender and have them remove the PMI without refinancing.
