How do I refinance my home without paying PMI?
100% of people found this answer helpful

You have to have at least 20% of the value of the house as down-payment, or in other words, to need only 80% to be financed through a mortgage. In addition, you need to cover closing costs (the bank should give you a good faith estimate of these costs). This way, you will avoid having to pay Private Mortgage Insurance, which is not tax deductible like the mortgage interest.
