Private mortgage insurance

Most lenders require PMI insurance for loans that exceed 80% of the home’s value. The insurance protects the lender, but the borrower pays a premium of .5% to 1% up front and a monthly charge. This insurance allows the borrower to obtain loans for which they would not ordinarily qualify.
