The buy down loan is similar to the PAM; however, it is the seller of the property and not the buyer/borrower who places cash in a segregated account so that additional amounts required may be drawn and paid along with the mortgage payments made by the borrower. The pledged account is created by the seller out of his profits as in the absence of such pledged account, the borrower may not be eligible for any kind of loan. The amount that the seller pledges is a direct reduction of the sale proceeds for him and the borrower uses the seller's money without himself having to repay this amount to the seller. Though, theoretically this cost incurred by the seller may be inbuilt in the price by increasing it, the mortgage lender may not allow it. Buy down loans are arranged by sellers who are anxious to sell their property.
