Seller Buydown Program

Want a better offer on your home?
Sell your home faster - at asking price or more - with a seller-paid buydown.

How it Works:

  • A 2/1 buydown temporarily reduces the buyer’s mortgage interest rate the first two years of the loan.
  • The temporary buydown is paid for by the seller as an incentive to purchase your home.
  • The buyer’s monthly mortgage payments will be reduced the first two years of the mortgage, allowing them to pay full price for your home.

Seller-Paid 2/1 Buydown Example:

Loan Amount = $540,000
Reduced Rate for Year 1 = 4.25%
Reduced Rate for Year 2 = 5.25%
APR* = 6.457% APR
30-Year Fixed Rate = 6.25%
Total Seller-Paid COST = $12,136

When Does a Seller-Paid Buydown Make Sense?

  • Mortgage rates are trending higher, making affordability more difficult for buyers.
  • Home sales are slowing down, resulting in higher competition among sellers.
  • The seller wants to attract more buyers without reducing their asking price.
  • There’s a potential to increase the seller’s profit with a buydown strategy.
