Our Homepath program is not that much more expensive than a standard Fannie loan though the rate is higher and would be glad to compare prices for you with any other lender who offers the Homepath. Home owner's insurance and tax would be escrowed and therefore become a part of your monthly payment to the mortgage company.

It is worth comparing to FHA especially since FHA rates are so very low right now and the upfront mortgage insurance has been reduced by over 50%. Let's do a chart of payment options for you and see what makes the most sense for your circumstance. No charge, no obligation.

Hello Faith
The pmi is paid throughthe interest rate that you get with the loan. I just finished a Homepath loan and the rate was up almost 2 percent higher than the base rate of a 30 year fixed. I still think is is a good program being that rates are as low as they are today. The homeowners insurance is paid through the buyer just like any other loan. I hope this helps and if I can further assist you please feel free to give me a call.

Yes as with any purchase, th ebuyer purchases their own home owners insurance policy and is responsible for paying their own property taxes. the bank giving you themortgage will set up a escrow account for you which these payments will be paid monthly with your mortgage payment.
