How to ELIMINATE or REDUCE your monthly PMI
I call private mortgage insurance (PMI) the necessary evil of mortgage industry. If you have less than a 20% down payment to put toward your home purchase, or less than 20% equity when refinancing, you'll have to deal with mortgage insurance because of your increased risk to the mortgage lender. Not everyone has a 20% down payment, so paying PMI is very common. Even FHA loans require mortgage insurance. If your mortgage requires PMI, you'll pay PMI until you refinance or until your Loan-to-Value in your property is 78%. Traditionally, you pay private mortgage insurance monthly as part of your mortgage payment. This can be expensive.
Would you be interested to know about less expensive mortgage insurance options? Has your Loan Officer discussed with you options to significantly reduce or eliminate PMI from your loan? Why not? Maybe because you are working with the wrong lender!

Another benefit, is because of the way the mortgage insurance is paid, you'll maximize your tax deduction (remember to check with your tax advisor before making any tax-related decisions).
