Eliminating PMI will lower your mortgage payment

When the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate, almost all lenders ask buyers to purchase an added insurance policy. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. Seeing that added payment is usually folded into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. PMI is no longer required when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfavorable. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was approved by the United States Congress requiring lenders to dismiss the PMI payments on most mortgages when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.
