PMI Calculations for Home Mortgage

Using online calculators, I see that PMI is much higher when you put down less than (exactly) 5%. If you change that one dollar to make to 5%, the PMI drops by a large amount. Anyone know why this is, and if there is any other trigger like that built in at other %'s?

re: PMI Calculations for Home Mortgage
think on some loans 10% is another trigger

it is specific to loans. FHA having a higher PMI than so other traditional loans, and RD loans have smaller PMI

The more you put down and the higher your credit score, the lower your PMI on conventional loans. It is that simple. FHA and RD have the same rate no matter what you put down or your FICO score.

It's every 5% (5, 10, 15) until you hit 20%
