Atlas Land Services LLC can help you do away with PMI to lower your mortgage paymentPrivate Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an added insurance plan that most lenders ask homebuyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Most often, this additional payment is lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. PMI isn't required when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% mark, making this very unfavorable. In fact, the United States Congress passed a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) requiring lenders to remove the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.
Atlas Land Services LLC can produce a statement regarding the value of your home, and the cost of the appraisal can usually be offset in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
