What Are “Mortgage Terms"?

What Are “Mortgage Terms"?


I am just now starting my research on mortgages and what it all entails.


I am still a little confused regarding the "mortgage terms" what are they and what is the difference?

Thank you for your question.
Here are some examples of mortgage terms.
  • A mortgage term is the length of time, which it usually is in years, in which the limits of a mortgage have legal effect.
  • Longer term mortgages tend to carry a higher interest rate as oppose to a shorter term mortgage.
  • Shorter term mortgages have a lower interest rate, but are subject to renewal over a much shorter period, which restricts a buyer to “lock in” a low rate.

It would seem like the shorter term mortgages would be the way to go but theyre subject ot renewal at a shorter period of time than I dont know, i guess I need to request a consultation with Canadalend in order to get a better idea of what my options are.

Can mortgage terms be flexible for first-time mortgage owners?
