Mortgage Points

Mortgage Points

When closing on a house, a borrower will have the option to buy mortgage points from the lender, also known as discount points. This additional fee, tacked onto closing costs, is essentially a way to "buy down the rate" (i.e., lower the rate) of the mortgage and save on interest over the life of the loan.
