Want to Get Rid of PMI? Talk to Us About a Re-Fi!

Want to Get Rid of PMI? Talk to Us About a Re-Fi!

With the recent rises in home values in California, you might be able to make your mortgage payment a little smaller and more affordable.

If you originally financed your home with a down payment of less than 20%, you're probably paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). You may be able to eliminate this extra expense, which can be $200 to $300 per month (based on .05 to 1% of your loan amount), by refinancing at E-Central.

By reviewing your current loan and estimating your property value in today's real estate market, our in-house mortgage experts can tell you if you may be able to eliminate PMI. If your home has gone up in value, and you now have 20% equity or more, you may be able to get a new loan from E-Central — at today's low rates — with no PMI required. Whether you choose a 5, 7, or 10-year adjustable rate mortgage, or a 15, 20, or 30-year fixed rate loan, you might reduce your payment by more than the cost of your PMI! Call or stop by E-Central today. Our Home Loan experts can explain all your best options.
