At Fortera, we know that when we work together, everyone does better. That’s why we’re offering to pay 1% of your interest on a new home loan for the first 12-months. This means for one full year you will get 1% of your interest on your new home loan completely on us!
What is a Temporary Interest Rate Buydown?
For the first 12 months of the loan, Fortera will pay 1% of the interest on your new home loan. For example: If you have a 6% interest rate on your loan, Fortera would cover 1% and you would be responsible for the other 5% for that 12-month period. You can set aside the savings or use for purchases such as new furniture, appliances or other expenses for your new home.
The 1%, or difference between what you pay during the first 12-months and the full mortgage payment amount, will be placed in an escrow account funded by Fortera. Each month, Fortera will make a payment on your behalf to cover the difference between the full rate and your temporary rate. After the first year, your rate and payment will adjust back to the full permanent amount.
How do I apply and who is eligible?
Whenever you apply for a Home Loan with Fortera, we will automatically review your application to determine if your loan qualifies. Our One4One Mortgage Booster is available on conventional and VA loans.
Does the One4One Mortgage Booster require a higher down payment?
No, this feature does not impact the size of your down payment.
How much will I save?*
Let’s use a $300,000, 30-year fixed loan with a permanent interest rate of 6.75% as an example. For the first year of your loan, your interest rate would be 5.75% and your monthly payment would be $1,750.72. The interest rate becomes fixed at 6.75% after the first year with a monthly payment of $1,945.79. That means you will save $195.07 per month during the first year of your loan, for a total savings of $2,340.84.
