Contempory HomeDo you find yourself wanting to get a better mortgage interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate loan? Maybe you wish the first year (and second and third year) could offer a lower rate as you ease into the long-term prospect of a 30-year mortgage? For these reasons, New American Funding has loans that offer a reduced payment rate in the first year, the first two years and even the first three years of your mortgage.

What Is a Buydown?

A mortgage rate buydown** is when a borrower pays an additional charge (called a "point") in exchange for a temporary lower interest rate and lower payment on their mortgage. This one-time fee is paid at closing by the borrower.

As a potential borrower, you may be eligible for a new fixed loan from New American Funding that could reduce your first-year, second-year and third-year payment rate on a 30-year loan. There are three buydown options to choose from:

  • 1-0 Buydown: A payment rate 1% lower than the note rate for the first year on a new loan
  • 2-1 Buydown: A payment rate 2% lower than the note rate for the first year and a payment rate that is 1% lower than the note rate in the second year on a new loan
  • 1-1-1 Buydown: A payment rate 1% lower than the note rate for the first three years on a new loan

As an example, if you were to obtain a 2-1 mortgage buydown on a $350,000 loan with a 30-year mortgage at 6.75% interest, your lump sum paid upfront would be $8,063.  You would then be paying $1,826 a month your first year with a 4.75% rate.  The second year, your interest rate would go up another point to 5.75% and you would pay $2,043 every month.

The rest of the life of your mortgage you would be paying the 6.75% rate and $2,270 a month.  This way, you would be saving the original $8,063 but much earlier in the life of the loan.  These savings could be invested in your home or a savings account.
