Prospect's Extended Rate Lock allows a builder to have eligible homebuyers lock in a rate at the time a loan application is completed for an unfinished home. The program includes two-, three-, four-, six- or nine-month lock-in terms and is available on conventional, fixed, adjustable, and government loan programs. Qualified buyers receive a ceiling on the interest rate with the option to float down to a lower market rate at time of closing. The program protects the builder's investment from rising rates, mitigates pipeline fallout, ensures that the property stays within the buyer's financial reach, and reduces the risk of your inventory being held off market for an unqualified buyer. This rate protection programs provides builders with an attractive advertising feature to buyers.
