How to compare mortgage insurance?


Obtaining private mortgage insurance will be required by the lender if you put less than 20% down payment. However, before getting a PMI, you should compare mortgage insurance options to see what different insurers offer.

Actually, getting mortgage insurance that acts much like a term life insurance may be the better option for you instead of getting simply a private mortgage insurance that only protects your lender. With mortgage protection insurance, not only will your lender keep receiving their mortgage payments, but you will be entitled to receive additional funds to help you cope with whatever situation occurred.

So, when comparing mortgage insurance quotes, you should consider those offering best protection. Some mortgage insurance packages will come with protection in case of unemployment, sickness, or decease.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
