Jessica Tracy answered:

I know that my sister was able to. I would talk to your bank or mortage broker to see what would be best for you, either a lower rate or if paying less pmi. If you would like a mortgage referral I would be happy to give you some. Also, if you have any questions about buying your new home or would like a tour, I would be happy to assist.

I can be reached at 860-368-8383.

You need to be at 75% LTV for a 2 - 4 unit investment property for conforming financing. You may be able to find someone doing it as portfolio in your area, but you would need to investigate that. You won't find what you are looking for with traditional conventional financing and obviously FHA is out of it's non-owner occupied. ... more

Gregorio Denny answered:
The MIP (not PMI) on a FHA loan above 95% is 1.25%, at or below it's 1.20%. The calculation is as follows.

((355K - DP%)*MIP%)/12

355-5% =$337,250
$337250*1.20% = $4047.00
$4047.00 / 12 = $337.25

355-3.5% = $342,575
$342,575*1.25% = $4282.19

MIP with 5%% down = $337.25
MIP with 3.5% down = $356.85

Insert your numbers to calculate where you want to be.

Mike Sullivan answered:
Interest rates are at all time values at all time lows....and you can afford to buy...

A couple of thoughts, you might purchase a less expensive home...there are a lot of nice ones out there below $400,000....The alternative is rent, which provides no positives for you. You might try playing with a rent vs buy calculator ( to help with your decision.

For me personally, I prefer to own my own home...aside from the be tax benefits, I like building equity in a property that's mine, and I can do with what I please.

Hope this helps! Good luck with your search...don't let PMI be the deciting factor

Most banks say that you need to wait 3 years after the start market of your short sale unless you were current on your mortgage payments at the time of the short sale.
