What type of purchase? Condo, single family home or 1 to 4 family units? Do you know who your lender is using for Private Mortgage Insurance?

You can go on the website of MGIC or Radian and look at the MI factors.

That's actually not bad considering you will have a high balance loan amount. If you were using FHA you would be at 1.35% but there are other factors to take into account Debt To Income Ratio, Property Type. You can calculate you est. PMI Payment yourself go to all the PMI companies. Radian, MGIC, Genworth, United Guarantee.

That's a good rate considering the terms of your loan. You would see a decent drop if you could up your down payment to 10% or more.. and compared to FHA, which Is 1.35%, your .94% seems like a bargain...
