When should you pay discount points?

When you pay a discount point, you are essentially paying part of your interest to the lender up front. This will lower your interest rate — as well as your monthly payment — over the life of the loan. One discount point is equal to 1% of the loan amount. Generally speaking, the longer you plan to remain in a property or hold your mortgage, the more advantageous it is to pay points. There is no requirement to pay discount points.
