In a landscape where mortgage rates are constantly swaying up and down, finding your dream home at the right time can sometimes feel like a daunting task. At Elliott Homes, we understand the challenges that come with fluctuating rates and the importance of securing your dream home without the uncertainty of market changes—which is why we’re thrilled to introduce our exclusive Lock and Sell and Buydown opportunities on select move-in ready homes through loanDepot.* With over a century of experience in crafting top-quality new homes in Sacramento, Phoenix and Yuma, we believe that finding your dream home should be a seamless and exciting experience—and these limited-time financing incentives are set to do exactly that. Read below to learn more about these incredible opportunities and what they mean for you.

What does a rate lock and 3-2-1 buydown mean? 

In the realm of home financing, a rate lock is your key to stability in an ever-shifting market. It's a commitment from our preferred lender at loanDepot to keep your mortgage interest rate unchanged for a specified period. This ensures that you can plan your finances with confidence, shielded from the unpredictable fluctuations.

Furthermore, Elliott Homes is adding an extra layer of financial flexibility with our 3-2-1 Buydowns through loanDepot. This innovative offering provides temporary reductions in your interest rate over the initial three years of your mortgage. During the first year, enjoy a 3% reduction, followed by a 2% reduction in the second year, and finally, a 1% reduction in the third year. Essentially, it's a strategic way to ease your financial burden in the early stages of homeownership, allowing you to allocate your resources more efficiently.

With select move-in ready homes offering either a rate lock or 3-2-1 Buydown through loanDepot, we’re creating a powerful financial toolkit for potential homeowners throughout Sacramento, Phoenix and Yuma. Our team of experts understands that it's not just about securing a home—it’s about securing it with a financial plan that aligns with your goals and lifestyle. This combination of stability and flexibility sets the stage for a homebuying experience that's not only seamless and enjoyable—but also tailored to your unique needs.
