Visionary Homes Makes Housing Affordable with New Mortgage Buydown Program

October 16, 2023


There’s no doubt that buying a home right now is expensive. Even with home prices falling post-pandemic, rising interest rates have had a profound effect on people looking for a place to call their own. Visionary Homes, a leading homebuilder in Southern Utah, is working to change that.

“We understand that high interest rates are affecting the affordability of buying a home,” said Matt Relei, Southern Utah director of sales forVisionary Homes. “We want to help our buyers be able to buy a home with a mortgage payment they can afford.”


Introducing the 2/1 mortgage rate buydown program, a special offer for buyers of condos and townhomes in Desert Color. You could save hundreds of dollars on your mortgage payment every month while enjoying the benefits of homeownership in a newly built property.


With the 2/1 buydown program, the mortgage rate that buyers lock in today will be reduced by 2% for the first year of homeownership. The discount is then reduced to 1% for the second year. At the beginning of the third year, the loan returns to the original fixed rate. However, buyers can refinance anytime if mortgage rates decrease as projected.


Visionary Homes has partnered withFirst Colony Mortgageas their preferred lender to simplify the borrowing process. The buydown program does have upfront costs, but Visionary Homes and First Colony Mortgage will cover those costs to pass even more savings on to buyers.

Condo payments start as low as $1,678 a month with the 2/1 buydown program. Homeowners can potentially save thousands of dollars over the first two years of their loan.

The 2/1 mortgage buydown offer is only available to buyers who obtain a loan through First Colony Mortgage and close on specific condos or townhomes in Desert Color before the end of 2023.
