2-1 and 1-0 Buydowns with Plaza

Help your borrowers get the extra boost they may need to make their home purchase a reality. Using a buydown reduces the borrower's monthly payment for the first one or two years, giving them more affordable payments.

  • Fannie Mae®/Freddie Mac, HomeReady® and Home Possible
