Refinance Your FHA Home Loan Reason #1:

Say good bye to mortgage insurance (sooner) and hello to savings! Unlike other insurance policies, mortgage insurance doesn’t protect you. It protects your mortgage lender in the unlikely event your home goes into foreclosure.

Private mortgage insurance (PMI) is required if you put down less than 20% of your home’s loan-to-value (LTV). Most lenders allow you to drop PMI once you reach between 20-22% LTV- unfortunately FHA does not. Mortgage insurance is required for the life of an FHA loan.
