A rate buydown is a great strategy for buyers in this market?


With interest rates on the rise, most buyers feel like they're in a bit of a pickle right now. Rates were 3% in January, but now they’re approaching 7%, and prices continue to increase as well. Therefore, most buyers are feeling very fatigued and discouraged. If that’s you, be encouraged because I’m here to tell you about a great strategy.

Due to this market slowing down, buyers can ask the seller to provide a credit that can be applied toward an interest rate buydown. This lets you get a significantly lower interest rate, which makes mortgage payments more affordable. The seller also wins because they get their price, so everyone’s happy.
