Extended rate lock

When your clients are looking for new construction financing, we can help them purchase with confidence. With our mortgages, HSBC offers various extended rate lock options, up to 360 days. HSBC’s extended rate lock includes a rate roll down feature—a one-time option that allows clients to take advantage of lower rates, should they improve prior to closing.

Graph explaining the interest rate and buyer's rate. As interest rate fluctuates, the buyers rate stays the same. If the interest rate goes to a new low, the buyers rate stays at the new low. This is called the Buyers rolled down rate. HSBC's holds various extended rate lock options up to 360 days. There is a one time option to roll down the rates to take advantage of lower interest rates.
