Excellent credit history/score, still need to buy down the rate(from 3.75-3.5)? does this sound accurate?

Why do you need to buy down the mortgage rate? Did the mortgage officer go over all your options? If not find another one.

Possibly - did your lender explain the reasoning behind that? Do you know what your debt to income ratio is? Perhaps you are borderline on the amount you can pay monthly and therefore buying down the rate allows you to qualify for a certain payment.

Hello Homeforus,

it is possible that you need to be at a certain rate to qualify. There may also be other ways for you to qualify.
Since the rate is based on the monthly payment, getting a lower priced insurance policy can make a difference, or paying off a small credit card.

My recommendation is to contact 2-3 Mortgage companies to see if there are like answers to your question. i am not a mortgage person, but many factors are taken into consideration when a rate is quouted. What does your mortgage person say?
