What Are Points?

Posted on Posted in Home Buyer Guide


Points are mortgage interest fees paid up front. This one-time fee reduces the initial interest rate on your home loan. Points are a percentage of your loan amount, with one point being equal to one percent of your loan. If you are purchasing a home, the amount of your points is generally deductible in the year you buy. This is true even if the seller is paying for them. Keep this in mind while buying a new home.
