A mortgage, or more precisely a mortgage loan, is a long-term loan used to finance the purchase of real estate (eg, a house). Under the mortgage agreement, the borrower agrees to make a series of payments back to the lender (often, a retail bank).
The money lent by the bank is secured against the value of the property. If the payments are not made by the borrower, the bank can take back the property.
