What is PMI Insurance?
Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a type of insurance you are required to pay if your down payment is less than 20% of the home’s purchase price with a conventional loan. PMI is an insurance policy paid by you, the borrower, however it is in place to protect the lender should you default on your loan.
How Long Will You Pay for PMI Insurance?
• When your loan balance is scheduled to reach 78 percent of the original value of your home. It is automatically terminated by the lender.
• Canceled at your request because your equity in the home reaches 20 percent of the purchase price or appraised value. An appraisal, paid by the borrower, is required along with a written request for termination.
• You reach the mid-point of the amortization period. A 30-year loan for example, would reach the midpoint after 15 years.
How Much Does It Cost?
No PMI can save you $125.00 per month on a $250,000 loan with a PMI rate of .60%. That is a $1,500/ year savings. Based on a 700+ credit score.
What is MIP?
Mortgage Insurance Premium, or MIP, is an insurance policy required by for FHA home loans, regardless of the down payment amount. The upfront premium is 1.75% of the loan amount , and the annual premium ranges from .45% to 1.05% of the average outstanding balance of the loan for that year.
How long will you pay for MIP insurance?
FHA loans with MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premium) that originated before June, 2013, mortgage insurance cancels when the loan to value gets to 78% and 5 years have passed since the loan was created. FHA loans taken out after this date will pay mortgage insurance for as long as the loan is in place. MIP stays on for the life of the loan. Only with refinancing the loan to an 80% or less loan to value is this removed.
How much does it cost?
No MIP can save you $177.08 per month on a $250,000 loan with an MIP rate of .85%. That is a $2,125/ year savings.
MIP and PMI are not to be confused with homeowner’s insurance, which protects the property.
