What is 2-1 Temporary Buydown?
The 2-1 buydown loan program offers a fantastic way for your borrowers to secure a mortgage with a temporary interest rate reduction. For the initial two years, your borrowers benefit from decreased rates, creating a smoother start to their homeownership journey. By the third year, the rate settles to match the standard loan rate. Think of it as an introductory deal for a mortgage, helping your borrowers transition comfortably into their payments. An ideal choice for clients who appreciate upfront savings and have a clear future plan!
