  1. Purchase Money Mortgages
    This is a mortgage that requires the person who is selling the property to provide financing to the person who is buying the property.One transaction is formed when the buyer executes the mortgage at the same time as the acquisition of the legal title to the property. These types of mortgages are most common when the buyer has little to no credit.
  2. Balloon Mortgages
    When this mortgage is used, twice the regular monthly payment of the mortgage is required as the principal balance. Regular monthly payments are a huge part obtaining a balloon mortgage. Each mortgage of this type is required to have a stamped or printed legend that states what the principal balance due will be once it has reached maturity.
  3. Assumption of the Seller’s Mortgage
    When a home loan is transferred from one person to another all of the responsibility of paying on the loan is transferred as well. This way a better financial deal can be obtained by the person who initially obtained the loan. This kind of loan can get complicated and has many ins and outs depending on the individual situation.
