About Mortgages

Shopping for the right loan is just as important as choosing the right house. Your challenge is to select the loan terms that are most favorable to your situation. In selecting the loan that's right for you, you'll need to understand:

- Basic components of a mortgage loan
- Fixed-rate mortgages;
- Adjustable-rate mortgages;
- Government loans and programs;
- Balloon loans
- Basic Components of a Mortgage Loan
A mortgage requires you to pledge your home as the lender's security for repayment of your loan. The lender agrees to hold the title or deed to your property (or in some states, to hold a lien on your title or deed) until you have paid back your loan plus interest.
