You can avoid PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) through one of two ways: 1) Put 20% or more down on your home purchase. 2) Use a second lien to keep keep your first lien at or below 80% of the value/price of your home.
WHEN IS IT BEST TO PUT MORE DOWN ON A CONVENTIONAL LOAN?
It depends on your situation. Typically improvements on rate and terms happen in increments of 5% (5%, 10%, 15%, 20%). Putting 7% down, for example, is not generally going to get you more favorable terms than 5% down; so to see an improvement, you would most likely need to put 10% down. Most of the time, our recommendation is that if you cannot reach the next increment of 5%, to just do the one that you can.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR REMODELING WITH A CONVENTIONAL LOAN?
