Central Vermont Real Estate, The Point of Points

buying Central Vermont real estateThose buying or refinancing Central Vermont real estate may want to know if there is a point to points.  In fact there is, points are a mortgage term that come in two forms, “origination points” and “discount points”.  Origination points are involved in most closings for Central Vermont real estate and cover the lender’s costs for issuing the loan.

Home buyers pay for discount points in order to reduce their monthly mortgage payments.  One point is equal to one percent of the loan value and can reduce the overall interest rate of the loan by 1/8 of a percent per point purchased.  In effect paying for points is paying interest up front.

When buying Central Vermont real estate a home buyer might wonder whether or not buying points is a wise idea.  If the main goal is a reduction in monthly payments, then paying for points up front can be a great idea.  On the flip side paying for points can be tough if it is taking away from money that you have set aside for a down payment.  Another consideration is how much the points cost and how quickly the monthly savings would recoup that upfront cost.

The financial aspect of buying Central Vermont real estate can be confusing.  A Central Vermont REALTOR® can clarify terms and educate a home buyer on the buying process.  Contact us today to have access to all Central Vermont properties that are currently listed for sale.
