Real Estate, undoubtedly, is one of the prominent industries globally. It is an industry that is inclusive of various prospects that range right from professionals to amateur buyers. No wonder, one can come across various terminologies that may absolutely seem Greek and Latin to some extent. Hence, Hallmark is back with the third installment of the exclusive series “Everything Real Estate” wherein we give you interesting insights of 5 terminologies that are regularly used in the real estate industry. So, if you are a potential buyer, an instinctive investor or a real estate fanatic, you are in for a treat!

1.  Assessed Value:

Assessed Value is a property management jargon. The assessed value is the overall value of a particular property that is professionally assessed by a public assessor. This is done for tax purposes.

2.  Mortgage Broker:

Mortgage is a common instrument for most of the home buyers. Mortgage is the home loan that is sanctioned to a home buyer. A home buyer applying for a mortgage, needs to  repay the principal amount along with the interest which is spread over a certain time period. The mortgage brokers are the agents that bridge between the property buyers and the mortgage lenders.

3. Adjustable-Rate Mortgage:

Adjustable-Rate mortgage refers to the type of loan wherein the interest rate payable keeps fluctuating throughout the tenure. These changes occur based on the market conditions. Although, the interval at which the alteration of the interest rate takes place is predetermined. 

4. Fixed Rate Mortgage:

This term is the exact opposite of adjustable-rate mortgage. In this one, the interest to be paid against the home loan is the same rate, irrespective of the market conditions. This implies that even if the market falls down, the interest rate payable is higher as it is fixed.

5.  Equity:

Equity is the investment a property owner has in their respective property. Equity is calculated by subtracting the total mortgage from the market value of the property.
