Although the definition is simple, there are more details you need to know about how they work.

Whether you are a first time home buyer or buying your first real estate property, you should know exactly how mortgages work. The process starts out with you asking a bank to lend you money. Once they decide you are fit for a mortgage, they will typically ask for a down payment. This will be a percentage of the overall loan amount. This amount is usually around three to five percent of the total cost. The loan company will then pay the remainder to the person selling the home. It is then your job to continuously pay the loan company back until your home is paid off.
