Mortgage and mortgage – what are the differences?

Mortgage

Mortgage

A mortgage is the cheapest loan available on the market. Its purpose is the purchase, renovation or construction of real estate. The interest rate on such a loan ranges from 1.5% in Swiss Francs to 8% in USD. The repayment security for such a loan is for the bank the property for which the loan is granted.

Mortgage loan

Mortgage loan

A mortgage loan is granted to the owner of the property for any purpose. It can be considered that it is the cheapest form of consumer credit. This is because the bank’s risk is limited by collateral on the property. The scale of the mortgage interest rate is of course very different, however, it usually fluctuates around 10%. If you compare it with the interest rate on the card, for example – 18% mortgage is much cheaper.

In order to apply for a mortgage, you must own a property whose value will be sufficient collateral for the loan. The bank may refuse to grant a mortgage if the land and mortgage register contains provisions about other liabilities. Therefore, this solution is dedicated to people who do not have mortgages or other loans on the property to be secured.
