What is a Mortgage?

What is a Mortgage?

A mortgage represents a loan or lien on a property/house that has to be paid over a specified period of time. Think of it as your personal guarantee that you'll repay the money you've borrowed to buy your home. Mortgages come in many different shapes and sizes, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. We are here to help you select the mortgage that is right for you, your future plans, and your financial future.

What is an amortization schedule

The month-by-month allocation of your monthly payment to the loan's interest and principal is called an amortization schedule. With most loans you pay more interest than principal at the begining of the loan.  As you continue to pay down the loan, you will pay more and more principal and less and less interest.  Your lender will provide an amortization schedule to show you how the percentage of your principal paid off increases with every payment, while the percentage of interest decreases.
