Keith O'hare, Home Buyer in 27713

How much will a 3.2% APR (7/1 ARM) go up if I only have 10-15% down instead of 20%?

It may not go up at all except for the fact that you will have a separate Mortgage Insurance payment on the loan. However, a lot of lenders do not hit the interest rate if you pay the separate MI payment - which will fall off as soon as the loan to value of the home equals 80%.

However, if you wanted to roll MI into the rate itself, I typically see about a .5% rate increase to include MI. Thereby, your rate would be approx 3.7%

If you have any questions, feel free to call me.
