What is a Mortgage?

July 2nd, 2012 | Mortgage Info

A loan used to buy real estate. A mortgage is secured by the property it is used to purchase. One must make monthly payments on a mortgage, and there is a set term before full payment is due, often 15, 20, or 30 years. Some mortgages have fixed interest rates, while others have variable interest rates. If one defaults on a mortgage, the bank making it may take possession of the real estate and sell it to recover its investment. Some banks, notably savings and loans, specialize in making mortgage loans.
