PMI Charges, Going Up! Beat the Date & Save Money!
If you have been thinking of purchasing a home, please don't wait for spring or the warmer weather.Â Starting on April 18th, the pmi (private mortgage insurance premium) for loans on homes, will be going up.Â The Federal Housing Administration is raising the fee for pmi, one quarter of one point on all fifteen and thirty year mortgages.
Depending on the mortgage amount, and term of the loan, this can be a difference of several dollars, added to the payment.Â For instance, on a $160,000 mortgage, this rises to $53.00 a month more of the pmi amount to be paid.
