A Brenner Company, LLC can help you get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage paymentPrivate Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance plan that most lenders ask buyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. Seeing that added payment is usually bundled into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. This is damaging because PMI is unnecessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% mark. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was passed by the United States Congress that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.
A Brenner Company, LLC can provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the appraisal can usually be regained in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
