Points Calculator
Should you buy points? Buying points when you close your mortgage can reduce its interest rate, which in turn reduces your monthly payment. However, each "point" will cost you 1% of your mortgage balance. This calculator helps determine if you should pay for points or use the money to increase your down payment.

Definitions

Term in years

The number of discount points you need to pay in order to receive the lower rate. Each point costs 1% of your mortgage amount.
