How does a Buydown work?

Pretty simple. For a 2-1 Buydown for example, the borrower enjoys a reduced interest rate for the first year of the loan and a slightly higher rate for the second year. The rate then goes up to the full rate on the third year for the life of the loan. For a 1-0 Buydown the borrower enjoys a 1% reduction only on the first year.
A seller can pay for the buydown. The payment is made in the form of mortgage points or a lump sum in escrow account and used to subsidize the borrower’s reduced monthly payments.

What are the benefits of a Buydown?

It may help some borrowers afford a larger mortgage and more expensive home. Plus it buys them some time before their mortgage payments rise to the full rate which can help if their income is also rising from year to year.
Your advantage is that it helps you provide an incentive to more borrowers who may not have thought about using this program. Thus, reaching more clients. Its a win-win!
