2-1 Interest Rate Buydown

We are now offering a Temporary Rate Buydown to lower a borrower’s interest rate at the start of their loan. It’s a great option for borrowers who expect an increase in their income in the next few years and/or who have excess seller concessions to use — and want to take advantage of a low fixed rate.  While this is a temporary rate reduction, this program has a lot of buyers and sellers very excited.

Seller-paid 1- year OR 2-year buydown options

  • 2-1 buydown of 2% in the first year and 1% in the second year. By the third year they are at the full rate.
  • 1-0 buydown of 1% in the first year. By the second year they are at the full rate.

Conventional 30-Year Fixed

  • 2-1 Temporary Buydown on a $360,000 loan amt for a borrower with a 740 FICO and 90% LTV
  • The borrower must qualify for the full monthly payment (before the buydown rate is applied)
  • Seller concessions are deposited as a lump sum into a buydown account. A portion of this sum is released each month to reduce the borrower’s monthly payments.

*The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 7.152%. The principal and interest payments, which will continue for 360 months until paid in full, do not include taxes and home insurance premium, which will result in a higher actual monthly payment. Rates as of 10/28/2022. Subject to borrower approval. Some exclusions may apply.
