Here are the answers to our giveaway:

- How do you pay down your PMI faster? The easiest, way to get rid of your PMI is by making your mortgage payments on time each month. Once your loan-to-value ratio (LTV – how much you owe vs how much the house is worth) reaches 80 percent, you can contact your lender to begin the process of taking off the PMI.
- What is the definition of debt to income ratio? The debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is a personal finance measure that compares an individual’s monthly debt payment to his or her monthly gross income. Your gross income is your pay before taxes and other deductions are taken out. The debt-to-income ratio is the percentage of your gross monthly income that goes to paying your monthly debt payments.
