Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

For anyone taking out a conventional mortgage (fixed-rate or ARM) and putting down less than 20% for their down payment, private mortgage insurance (PMI) will be required by the lender. The lower the down payment amount, the higher the PMI rate will usually be.
