Factors Deciding Types of Mortgage Loans
A mortgage loan is a loan that is enabled by placing a real estate property as security. The mortgage loan in itself is evidenced by a document that describes the regulations and instances on which the loan has been signed out. There are several aspects of the mortgage loan, like the amount of interest, the term of the loan, the type of repayment etc, which differ from loan to loan and is available in the documentation pertaining to the mortgage loan. These are some of the broad aspects on which the types of mortgage loans can be divided into. Make sure that are informed about these terms, before you opt in for a mortgage loan, because these are the terms that will decide what amount of money you will be paying back and in what timeframes.
Interest to be paid:
The type of interest rate that is paid decides the type of the mortgage loan. For example, the interest rate may be fixed for the lifetime of the loan, or may be what is known as the floating rate of interest throughout the loan, or may even change at a predetermined point of time during the lifetime of the loan. The change may decrease the amount to be paid or increase the amount.
Term of the Loan:
Most mortgage loans have a pre determined term, like ten years of fifteen years. The term of the loan also decides the amount of interest and the rate of interest that you will be paying. For example, the percentage of interest that one would pay for a loan with five year term will be more than what they would pay for a loan with a ten year term.
Payment Amount:
Most mortgage loans have a set amount of money to be paid at a fixed date on a monthly basis, but some mortgage companies may allow the person to pay varied amounts per month, or even increase the time frame from monthly to biannually or even annually, etc.
Prepayment Options:
Some mortgage companies may offer the debtor chances to pre pay their loan. However, if the debtor agrees to pre pay the loan, or close the loan before the time frame, they may some more amount of money to close down the loan.
A mortgage loan has several advantages as well as disadvantages. The main advantages are that one might get an amount that is considerably more, as compared to what they would get in the unsecured loan, simply because they will be getting an amount that will be supported by the market price of their home. Mortgage loans also have a distinct advantage to the individuals who have more property, in the sense that they can save their liquidity by putting up their real estate on mortgage and taking out a loan.
However, mortgage loans are not without their disadvantages. For example, mortgage loans are for only those people who are financially responsible. If a person defaults on a couple of mortgage payments, they might lose their rights and ownership on the real estate.
