You usually need 20% down to avoid MI. You may want to look at doing a 15 year fixed with reduced mortgage insurance.

There are a few factors to consider but I would suggest a Conventional loan with 5% down payment. With the $6000 down, you'll be at around $100,000 sale price. You can, however, afford a higher priced home with an FHA loan which only requires 3.5% down payment and the seller can assist you with almost all your closing cost. With the FHA loan, you can go as high as $165,000 - $170,000. Other factors will come into play such as your current debt level.Anthea EmersonCoast 2 Coast Lendingwww.centralflmortgage.comanthea.emerson@hgfloans.com

VA financing does not have MI, but you must be VA eligible.. otherwise, if you don't have 20% down, you will pay MI.. regardless of your credit score.. the good news is that if you go conventional with 5% down, the MI is relatively inexpensive, and when you reach 20% equity, you can call the lender and ask that it be removed.. you will have to pay for an appraisal, but you don't have to refinance to remove it..I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona.

With your credit score and income there are many programs available for you. However, if you want to go with either a conventional or government program you will need 20% of the purchase price as a down payment. There are programs that are designed to help you avoid to paying mortgage insurance every month. Feel free to contact me to discuss your options.
