The most common method of financing the purchase of real estate has been the utilization of mortgage finance. A mortgage is the creation of a transaction whereby one party pledges real property to another party with an aid of a promising note that creates an obligation to repay the loan according to its terms secured together as a mortgage.

Whether an attorney draws up a special form or it is a printed form of mortgage instrument, a mortgage must include;

             1. appropriate identification of mortgager and mortgagee

              2. proper description of the property that has a lien.

              3. covenants of seisin and warranty.

               4. provision of the release of dower rights.

               5. any other desired covenants and contractual agreements.

Properties covered by mortgages and contractual agreements loans include land and existing buildings on the land, fixtures, and easements. A mortgage agreement may also provide rights to property covered by the mortgage like gas, water rights and mineral resources and even rights to rent and profit from the real estate property.

In mortgages, the conveyance of title comes upon the clearance of the loan, but getting the mortgage loan is always one step to become a homeowner. Most people who buy homes or want to refinance a real estate property seek mortgages to free up funds for other investments.

Not all loans are mortgages, the difference comes in with the security of the funds to be utilized in property development and investments and the collateral, which is always the home being funded.

Interest rates in mortgages are always determined by two things: current market rates and risks involved; with the most common terms being 15 and 30 years of repayment.
