Low down payment and mortgage insurance!!!

Recommended Posts

Need help with a mortgage situation! I got to hear from a friend about this forum!
I'm looking to buy my first home, but it seems like a long road ahead with the increase in real estate prices. My credit score falls in the range of 650-700, along with excellent payment history. I live in a two-bedroom rented apartment with my family. With the apartment's monthly rental price and other expenses, I can offer only a down payment of about 10%. I had discussed with a mortgage lender who has assured that I could get a mortgage, provided I have mortgage insurance. Mortgage insurance doesn't seem so bad, but I am in uncharted waters here. With the real estate prices still estimated to increase, I guess it is better to buy one early. Will the interest be higher if I take mortgage insurance? I did check an online source* for the interests that I would have to pay.
However, I would welcome help from those who have a similar situation. Could you guys share your personal experiences with mortgage insurances so that I can learn from it?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!
