TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can help you get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage paymentWhen the amount being loaned to the homebuyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the property, nearly all lenders ask homebuyers to take out an extra insurance policy. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. This added payment is often bundled into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is damaging because PMI isn't required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% level. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was approved by the United States Congress requiring lenders to dismiss the PMI installments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.
If you'd like to eliminate PMI, TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS will give you a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the appraisal can generally be recovered in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
