Enact_Aura.V1.pngWhy you'll be glad you picked MI. 

You can buy a home with less than a 20% down payment with MI. Mortgage insurance can help qualified borrowers realize the dream of homeownership sooner. It provides financial protection to lenders and investors in case of default. With the protection of mortgage insurance, lenders can offer mortgages to qualified borrowers with a low down payment.
  • Move in faster You don’t have to wait until you have saved enough for a 20% down payment.
  • Savings flexibility Lower down payment allows you to use your savings on other homeownership expenses, like remodeling or new appliances.
  • Cancelable MI may be cancelled when your loan reaches 78% of its original value.*
  • Mortgage payment control Lock-in a low monthly payment that will go down when MI coverage is cancelled
