If you have a conventional loan, and your loan to value ratio is over 80% – you will be paying monthly mortgage insurance to the lender.
No one likes paying monthly mortgage insurance. It’s extra money added to your payment every month, and it’s doesn’t help pay down the balance of the loan.
If you want a conventional loan and your LTV is over 80%, but don’t want to pay monthly mortgage insurance here are two ways to avoid this…
1) One would be Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance. We pay the MI for you. The rate generally is .25 to .375 higher, but there is no monthly mortgage insurance.
2) Get a piggy pack loan. This is where we make two loans for you. …A first mortgage at 80%, and a second mortgage at 15%. This way you just put down 5%, and there is no monthly mortgage insurance payment.
That’s it for today!
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading!
