Avoid PMI- pay premium up front?I have been looking around online and have found some sources that indicate it is possible to avoid monthly PMI by paying a premium up front. The most recent source was from February 2012. My current lender did not offer up this option in our prior talks. (Ideally, we will find a VA approved home... but I want to make sure I understand all of my options.)Is it possible to pay the full premium up front, and what would the % of the loan be? Thank you!November 15 2012 - Eugene00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
