House and Lot For Sale - Mortgage

One consideration when buying a house and lot for sale is to either pay it in cash or avail of a housing or home loan.

housing loan is also usually referred to as a mortgage. A mortgage is a home loan given by financial institutions such as a bank, mortgage company, or government institutions for real estate or residence – primary, secondary, or investment residence.

In the Philippines, you can avail of a mortgage through Pag-Ibig, Bank Financing, Inhouse or Owner Financing, and SSS Housing Loan.

Pag-IBIG housing loan is being offered by the government agency Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) or commonly known as Pag-IBIG Fund. Pag-IBIG members that are salaried, self-employed, and OFW with ages 65 and below can avail their housing loan. Another government agency that offers a mortgage is SSS. SSS housing loan is open to all their members under WOM, Workers’ Organization Members, or workers in the private sector registered under DOLE, the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the Cooperative Development Authority. To avail of a housing loan, the borrower should not be more than 60 years old at the time of application, has at least 36 months premium contribution, or has 24 contributions before the loan application.

An in-house financing or owner financing is when a borrowers get a mortgage from the developer of the property. Bank financing, on the other hand, is being offered by almost all banks in the country. The amount that can be borrowed, terms, and interest may vary from one bank to another.

A home mortgage can either be a fixed or a variable interest rate. In a fixed-rate mortgage, the interest rate and the periodical payment are the same for each period. A variable interest rate will have various monthly payments. The interest rate moves with the market during your loan’s entire term.

In the Philippines, there are two options for a mortgage – public and private. The public is through government agencies such as Pag-Ibig and SSS, while private is through banks like BDO, Security Bank, and China Savings Bank.

Interest rates of mortgage differ from bank to bank and government institution, period, and term.

HOW DOES MORTGAGE WORKS?

In home mortgage, a borrower or owner of the property transfer or lend the title of the property to either bank, government institution or developer, on the condition that the title will be transferred back to the owner on the agreed length of time and when the final loan and other terms of the mortgage are paid and met. If the borrower wasn’t able to pay the mortgage based on the terms that they agreed upon, the lender has the right to seize the real estate from the homeowner and sell it on the open market.

In a typical mortgage in the Philippines, the borrower makes monthly payments for the loan tenure until he fully paid both the principal of the loan and the interest. In the early years of the mortgage, most monthly payments will be allocated to pay the interest of the loan, but as years pass by the larger proportion of the payments will be allocated to the principal.

HOUSING LOAN TERMS

Having an idea about the terms used in housing loans will make you further understand the loan terms given by different institutions. That way you can choose which one will fit your budget and needs.

  • Principal – the amount you assumed and must pay back.
  • Interest Rate- also known as mortgage rate refers to the amount charged by a lender to a borrower for any form of debt.
  • Margin of Finance – is also known as the loan-to-value ratio.
  • Early Termination Penalty – a fee charged when a person wants to terminate the term or arrangement.
  • Down Payment – This is the initial payment made when purchasing a home. Down Payment is required for approval of the loan and it can also influence the monthly mortgage.
  • Prepayment – prepayment is when you fully or partially your loan before the agreed period.
  • Refinancing – refinancing happens when the borrower pays an old loan and replaces it with a new one.
  • Foreclosure – is a legal process wherein the lender ventures to get the balance of a loan from a borrower who was not able to make payments to the lender by forcing the sale of the asset used as the collateral for the loan.
  • Loan Term- the length of time or period wherein the borrower can pay the housing loan.
