What is Property Loan:
A property loan is a contract between a borrower and a lender that allows someone to borrow money to buy a house, apartment, condo, or other livable property. A property loan is typically paid back over a term of 10, 15 or 30 years.
How it works/Example:
For most people, purchasing a home is the biggest financial decision they will ever make. And with homes often costing hundreds of thousands -- and in some cases millions -- of dollars, most people can't afford to pay cash for the entire property up front. As a result, they need to take out a property loan (i.e. borrow) from a bank, credit union, or specialized mortgage lender for borrowers with lower budgets (such as the USDA, FHA, or VA).
