A. Mortgage
Explanation
A mortgage is a loan that is specifically designed to help individuals purchase a home. It is a financial agreement between a borrower and a lender, typically a bank or a mortgage company, where the lender provides funds to the borrower to buy a property. The borrower then agrees to repay the loan over a set period of time, usually with interest. Mortgages are a common and popular way for individuals to finance the purchase of a home, allowing them to spread out the cost over several years.

The closing also involves the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer.

If you don't make your payments on time, it can negatively impact your credit rating.

This can make it more difficult for you to obtain credit in the future, such as loans or credit cards, and may also lead to higher interest rates.
