Attention prospective sellers and buyers shopping for a home! With the market move that we have seen over the last quarter we are finding that 2/1 and 1/0 Buydown Mortgage options are becoming very popular. A buydown mortgage allows the home buyers to use prepaid interest from the seller to take advantage of lower rates than the market is currently offering. In the case of a 2/1 buydown with a 7% market rate the buyers first year interest is at 5% and the second year is at 6%! The savings paid by the seller sits in an escrow account with the lender and if the buyers were to sell the home or were able to take advantage of a potential refi if rates head back down, that money becomes a principal reduction and goes towards the payoff of the loan. It helps both the buyers to get into a more comfortable payment and helps the seller to attract more buyers to choose their home with the spike in inventory we are seeing, often in place of a price reduction. Take advantage of this today to help your listing become sold sooner!
