Lower your Mortgage Payments PMI

August 2, 2011

If you put less than 20% down when you buy a house, you’re likely to pay Private Mortgage Insurance.

When your equity reaches 80%, there are steps you can take to have the PMI removed.

1) Ensure that payments have been made on time, no 30 day+ lates
2) Equity position based on comps is at least 20%; good reason to get set up on Listingbook to review your comparable properties, call me for details
3) Be ready to pay for an appraisal – the bank will order the appraisal and borrower gets to pay for it.

The PMI won’t be automatically removed, you have to request it!
