2-1 Buydown Program

We’ve introduced a new program that is just as beneficial for our borrowers as it is for our builders. Our 2-1 Buydown program provides a fresh incentive to purchase move-in ready new construction homes from one of our builder partners by reducing your interest rates for the first two years of your loan.

The 2-1 Buydown program is simple: one of our builder partners contributes an upfront fee, which lowers your interest rate by up to two percentage points for the first two years of your loan. This knocks down initial monthly payments, so you can allocate funds toward transforming a new house into a dream home, and enables you to build equity as you ease into your new home.

Here’s an example: On a $250,000 loan with a rate of 5%, the monthly payment would be $1,342. After a temporary 2-1 buydown of $5,232, here’s what the reduction in monthly payments would look like for the first two years.

Our 2-1 Buydown program is offered for 30-year fixed rate products through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
