Mortgage Insurance


Open the Door to Sooner, Safer, and Smarter Homeownership

A loan with mortgage insurance may be the safest, most affordable option to help you achieve the dream of homeownership. Mortgage insurance allows you to responsibly buy a home years sooner, even if you have a low down payment. And after closing, if a financial setback occurs, our one-on-one homeowner assistance can help keep you secure in your home.

At its core, Mortgage Insurance provides these advantages for homebuyers:

  • Competitive monthly payments
  • Steady monthly payments that never increase
  • Convenient and easier closing paperwork than an FHA loan
  • Mortgage insurance premiums that are tax deductible1
  • Peace of mind if times get tough
  • Cancellation of the mortgage insurance upon building sufficient equity (approximately 80% of the home's original value)

And with Mortgage Insurance from Genworth, you may be able to take advantage of our additional benefits that help you after you move in. Ask your lender for more information about:

Homeowner Assistance Program
