First-Time Homebuyer? Educate Yourself!

1/27/2012

First-Time Homebuyer?  Here are some words you should know when buying a home:

Assumption Agreement:  A legal document signed by a homebuyer that requires the buyer to assume responsibility for the obligations of a mortgage by the builder or the previous owner.

Blended Payment:  A mortgage payment that includes principal and interest.  It is paid regularly during the term of the mortgage.  The payment total remains the same, although the principal portion increases over time and the interest portion decreases.The first step for first-time homebuyers is to get pre-approved to purchase.

Closed Mortgage:  A closed mortgage cannot be paid off, in whole or in part, before the end of its term.  Many closed mortgages limit prepayment options such as increasing your mortgage payments or lump sum prepayment (usually up to 20% of your original principal amount).

Conditional Offer:  An Offer to Purchase that is subject to specified conditions, for example, the arrangement of a mortgage.  There is usually a stipulated time limit within which the specified conditions must be met.

Lien:  A claim against a property for money owing.  A lien may be filed by a supplier or a subcontractor who has provided labour or materials but has not been paid.

Link Home:  A link, or carriage home, is joined by a garage or carport.  The garage or carport gives access to the front and back yards.  Builders sometimes join basement walls so that link houses appear to be single-family homes on small lots.  These houses can be less expensive than single-family detached homes.

Variable Mortgage Interest Rate:  Fluctuates based on market conditions but the mortgage payment remains unchanged.
