Calculation is generally 1.25% of the Sales Price
(Example: $600,000 Sales Price x 1.25% = $7,500 per year or $625.00 per month)
That is the number the underwriter will qualify you with for your new loan.
If you are purchasing in a NEW Home Community, the taxes will be quoted by the builder and they can be quite high, sometimes up to 2.25%. Be sure to factor this in if looking at newly built homes.
Calculation is generally a % of the loan amount however you have insurance on your existing vehicles and your insurance agent will happily quote you for insurance. Being that you have a car (or 2) on the policy with him/her, they will likely offer a discounted policy rate as well. The rates can vary based on the location of the home. Are you in a fire hazard area, backing up to vacant land with brush? Are you on a hillside? I always calculate high and figure a $1200 annual fee or $100 per month. Generally it is $50-60 per month depending on the homes location.
PMI is arranged by the lender and provided by private insurance companies. PMI is usually required when you have a conventional loan and make a down payment of less than 20 percent of the home’s purchase price. If you’re refinancing with a conventional loan and your equity is less than 20 percent of the value of your home, PMI is also usually required. This can also be calculated based on your credit score. Higher credit score = lower pmi rate.
Private mortgage insurance, also called PMI, is a type of mortgage insurance you might be required to pay for if you have a conventional loan. Like other kinds of mortgage insurance, PMI protects the lender—not you—if you stop making payments on your loan.
Mortgage insurance is a policy that protects lenders against losses that result from defaults on home mortgages. FHA requires both upfront and annual mortgage insurance for all borrowers, regardless of the amount of down payment.
This is for Single Family Planned Unit Developments, Single Family Attached Homes, Townhomes, and Condominiums. Some communities in newly built areas will have an HOA and a Sub-HOA. Be sure to get quotes on that when you are being pre-approved! Your lender will need this information.
