Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary


The practice of a seller, builder or other party advancing money to a mortgage lender resulting in lower monthly mortgage payments by a third party, the homebuyer. As the result of a buydown, monthly mortgage payments may be reduced for the entire life of the mortgage, or for just an initial period of one or more years. Frequently, the amount of the buydown is added to the selling price of the property.
