Home ownership is where an individual buys a home instead of living in a rental house. The advantage of home ownership is that the owner does not pay any rent as in a leasing system. Although it is advantageous, the prices of houses are very high to pay at once hence most people opt to take a home loan in form of mortgage. A mortgage is a debt instrument which a creditor charges a debtor as a collateral to a loan usually taken to purchase a house or the land to construct one. A mortgage is beneficial to individuals as home loan companies.

home loanTypes of loans include the fixed-rate and the variable-rate. The fixed-rate loan is one which the interest rates do not change hence the monthly payments are predictable. This type of mortgage is popular as the predictability of the monthly payments and the simplicity of the mortgage helps the debtor plan the payments and budget his money with ease. The variable-rate mortgage is that which the interest rates of the mortgage are prone to change, Change in the interest rates causes the monthly payment to change too. This type of home loan is usually cheaper than the fixed-rate.

Lenders usage of teaser rates is a way in which which lenders use to lure borrowers into choosing variable-rates rather than fixed-rate mortgages.
