What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)

Are any companies honest and just say that “We’re here for the money and so are you. If we want to keep you, we’ll pay you just enough to keep you from leaving if that makes sense for us. Otherwise we’ll fire you or not give you raises/bonuses” Curious because I would rather be at a company that says that than one that lies through their teeth about being a “supportive culture”
