A Mortgage (a home loan) is a legal contract between a lender and a borrower that uses the lender’s property as collateral to secure the loan. If the borrower fails to pay the prearranged loan payments, the lender can take possession of the property.
A homeowner may acquire a new loan to pay off an existing loan. The main reasons that homeowners refinance are to lower their interest rates and/or to access cash from their home equity.
A home loan is provided by a lender to the homeowner secured by a “lien” on the real estate.
A Second Mortgage is a loan taken out after the first mortgage, and it is secured against the same asset as the first mortgage loan. The amount of a mortgage loan is based on the equity or ownership interest you have in your home.
A mortgage Lender is a financial institution that provides prospective homeowners with the funds to pay off their home loan mortgage over a long-term period. Borrowers must pay monthly installments to their lender, including principal, interest, and additional lender fees.
A mortgage broker is a representative who matches borrowers with lenders based on corresponding needs and standards. Mortgage brokers arrange more than 80% of all transactions between borrowers and lenders, yet mortgage bankers finance and distribute the most significant portion of home loans compared to all other lenders.
The mortgage principal is the amount of money a homeowner borrows, excluding interest.
The Annual Percentage Rate ( APR ) is the percentage used to calculate the total cost of your cash advance loan by taking into account all fees charged by your lender in addition to your loan principle and interest.
A fixed-rate mortgage is a home loan with interest rates and monthly payments that do not change throughout the life of the loan.
An adjustable-rate mortgage is a mortgage loan whose interest rate is adjusted based on an index. The monthly payments you make may change during the term of your mortgage loan with the changing interest rate. The fluctuating rates pass on part of the interest rate risk from the mortgage lender to you.
Interest-only mortgages are loans that require the borrower to pay only interest on the principle in monthly installments for a fixed period. You can use one of our mortgage calculators to calculate exact payments.
Amortized mortgages refer to loans that are paid in installments made of principle and interest and which are paid off (or amortized) over a fixed period.
The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of your home is calculated by dividing the fair market value of your home by the amount of your home loan.

What are lender fees?
Lender fees usually range from 2 to 5 percent and may include, but are not limited to, appraisal costs, application costs, and document preparation.
The Truth in Lending Act is a federal law enacted as part of the Consumer Protection Act. This law requires lenders to reveal all information to the borrower and detail all costs associated with the transaction.
