What is a buy down?

A buy-down is a fee paid to lower the interest rate on a mortgage. Typically, the buyer, seller or any other interested party may pay it. A permanent buy-down would lower the rate for the entire term of the mortgage, while a temporary buy-down lowers the rate for a specified shorter term, generally three years or less.
