Mortgages

A mortgage is a loan to finance the purchase of a house. Most mortgages last for 15 or 30 years, and your credit score and the size of your loan and down payment can affect your interest rate. When interest rates drop, refinancing a mortgage can reduce monthly payments or shave several years off the term of a loan.
