Private Mortgage Insurance

Even if you can’t afford to put 20% down, you may still be able to fulfill your dream of owning a home. Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) makes homeownership a possibility for people who don’t have as much to contribute for a down payment. PMI is an insurance policy that helps protect the lender in case of default on mortgage payments.

While you are required to get PMI if your down payment is less than 20% of the appraised value or sale price of your home, you do have options when it comes to the terms of your policy. Redstone offers two types of PMI and there are advantages to each, depending on your situation. If you’d like help deciding which one best matches your needs, contact a member of our Mortgage Team and we’ll walk you through the pros and cons.
