Think of doing this for a rental property.
Yes, it is possible. But expensive as HML charge upfront points on the deal. So you would need to look into the cost associated with the strategy vs the discount you will get by paying cash
Although they’re charging upfront points, if I could get a house 20K cheaper, it would be worth it, wouldn’t it?
