POINTS. A point is a charge of one percent of the mortgage value. Points are a one-time charge assessment by the lender to increase the interest yield from the mortgage loan to a position competitive with the interest yield from other types of investment. Points are usually paid by the buyer or seller or split between them. Points may be required by the lender, but these system arrangements vary from state to state, so check into practices in your area.
