If you want to do the monthly mortgage payment calculation by hand, you’ll need the monthly interest rate — **just divide the annual interest rate by 12 (the number of months in a year)**. For example, if the annual interest rate is 4%, the monthly interest rate would be 0.33% (0.04/12 = 0.0033).

## Also, how can I avoid PMI with 5% down?

The traditional way to avoid paying PMI on a mortgage is **to take out a piggyback loan**. In that event, if you can only put up 5 percent down for your mortgage, you take out a second “piggyback” mortgage for 15 percent of the loan balance, and combine them for your 20 percent down payment.

**Example – Calculating PMI**

- Down Payment. = 15% * $350,000. = $52,500.
- Loan amount = Home Purchase Price – Down Payment. = $350,000 – $52,500. = $297,500.
- Annual PMI = Loan Amount * Mortgage Insurance Rate. = $297,500 * 0.55% = $1636.25.
- Monthly PMI. = $1636.25 / 12. = $136.35.
