There are a few important mortgage terms you should be familiar with. Today I’d like to highlight one phrase in particular: Mortgage insurance.

Mortgage insurance refers to coverage that protects the bank when buyers use a loan to purchase a property. This coverage ensures that the bank will be paid in the event of a foreclosure.

The cost of mortgage insurance will range from 0.03% to 1.15%, and it will be added into the price of your loan.

“Mortgage insurance ensures that the bank will be paid in the event of a foreclosure.”

On FHA loans, mortgage insurance will be paid up front and also throughout the entire life of the loan. For conventional loans, mortgage insurance will be waived after the buyer meets a 20% equity threshold.
