It is common for lenders to consider any loan of more than 80% a higher risk that requires mortgage insurance. However the price of MI varies between the lenders and their programs. Look into different loan scenarios such as 80% 1st + 5% 2nd loan vs. 85% one loan, etc.

You might get away with tax impounds, although it is a good idea to put aside monthly installments for your property taxes anyway.

Good luck.

Depends on the lender. If you need a loan contact Eli Weinberger at Bank of America. He has the best pricing out there. If you have any real estate questions, let me know. I have a strong track record of helping client buy foreclosed properties and I have access to great service providers like Eli who can help seal the deal.
