In general, **buying mortgage points is most beneficial when you intend to stay in your home for a long time and if you can afford large mortgage point payments**. If this is the case for you, it helps to first crunch the numbers to see if mortgage points are truly worth it.

Calculate your discount points, if you choose to pay them. Using the scenario in the step above, say you will be paying half a point to reduce your rate a half a point. Simply **multiply your mortgage amount ($200,000) by the fractional equivalent of half a point (0.005).** Your discount points will be $1,000.

The more points you pay, the lower the interest rate on the loan and vice versa. Borrowers typically can pay anywhere from **zero to three or four points**, depending on how much they want to lower their rates. This kind of point is tax-deductible. This is charged by the lender to cover the costs of making the loan.

**You should pay points on a mortgage if you have a relatively low income**, but a good lump sum to use to pay for the points. If you can afford more than a 20% deposit, you should use the extra to purchase points rather than reduce you principal sum borrowed.
