Starting Saturday, September 26, and running through Sunday, October 4, 2009, new buyers that deposit during the event can lock in a 30-year fixed mortgage rate as low as 2.875% at no additional cost for up to 12 months prior to closing at any one of Toll Brothers’ nine communities across metro Detroit.
The special mortgage rate begins at 2.875% for the first year, then moves to 3.875% in the second year, and remains at 4.875% for years 3 through 30 (4.752% APR).*
According to Toll Brothers, this mortgage incentive equates to real money in the buyer’s pocket. “At 2.875% during the first year, someone securing a $417,000 loan will have a monthly principal and interest payment of about $1,730,” says Christina Griffin, Business Development Manager for TBI Mortgage, Toll Brothers’ mortgage subsidiary. “This saves the buyer about $475 per month, compared to financing without a buydown.”
“Offering below-market rates and the 345-day lock is extraordinary,”
This deal is exclusively offered through TBI Mortgage Company (http://www.TBIMortgage.com) and requires a minimum 20% down payment and a maximum loan amount of $417,000.* Conditions apply and interested buyers should consult a Toll Brothers sales representative for details. Jumbo loans also are available at a discounted interest rate and other programs and packages are available to meet the needs of all buyers.
The company also has a few completed condominiums available now for those who are in need of immediate occupancy. "The value we are offering on our quick delivery homes has never been greater," Bye says.
For those with a home to sell, the builder offers special programs to help, including home-staging services and extended build times. Other incentive programs are also available.
Those interested can visit a Toll Brothers community in Milford, Novi, Northville, or Superior Township. Detailed maps and directions can be found on the event website, http://www.TollSalesEvent.com, or by calling 888.352.4663.

"We're certain that Toll Brothers' continued appeal despite the current market is due to its unwavering financial strength and its stability," Bye says. "Buyers are looking for great value, but they also want to know that their dream home will be completed on time and on budget and that the builder is here to stay."
