When developers want to preserve the price of homes for future sales and appraisals, offering to buy down the rate is a great way to add value for the buyer. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Are any of you working with a motivated seller?? **** Of course you are!!!**** If we were in a large room full of realtors and I asked that question I think there would be a lot of agents raising their hands!
