I was reading a CAR (California Association of REALTORS) article today and noticed the following talking point that I thought would benefit you to remember.
"Private mortgage insurance: Homeowners who are paying PMI likely will be able to fully deduct the amount, as long as their adjusted gross income is $100,000 or less ($50,000 for married taxpayers filing separately). Borrowers with incomes above $100,000 may qualify for a partial deduction."
If you have not already started, get your lender prequalification done and find a good REALTOR to work with you on your home search. Most Trulia agents would be happy to help or as friends a family for a referral.
