Let Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. help you get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage paymentPrivate Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an extra insurance plan that many lenders ask homeowners to buy when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the home. Since the additional payment is usually folded into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. PMI is no longer required when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% level, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) requiring lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.
If you'd like to eliminate PMI, Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. will give you a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the home valuation can generally be regained in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
