A home loan, also known as a mortgage, is a loan that is used to finance the purchase of a home. These loans are typically offered by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions, and can be used to buy both existing and new homes. The terms of a home loan will vary depending on the lender, the type of loan, and the borrower's creditworthiness. In general, home loans involve borrowing a large sum of money and agreeing to repay it over a set period of time, typically 15 or 30 years. The borrower will also be required to make regular payments of interest and principal, which are used to pay down the loan balance and eventually pay off the loan in full.
