A 5-7 year balloon payment mortgage is a mortgage which does not fully amortize over the term of the note, thus leaving a balance due at maturity. The final payment is called a balloon payment because of its large size. This loan offers faster closing times, and predictable payment amounts.
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is a type of mortgage in which the interest rate applied on the outstanding balance varies throughout the life of the loan. Normally, the initial interest rate is fixed for a period of time, after which it resets periodically, often every year or even monthly.
A construction mortgage loan designed for those building a new home. A construction loan (also known as a “self-build loan") is a short-term loan used to finance the building of a home or another real estate project.
