You may have heard the word mortgage being used in relation to buying a home or land in Jamaica. Or if you live pon di rock you may have hear ‘mortgridge’  but “What exactly is a Mortgage?”

In a nutshell, a mortgage is a loan from a lender to help you purchase your home or land without paying everything upfront or out of pocket. Your lender could be a bank, a credit union or NHT. 

Now a mortgage is paid monthly and generally over a long period like 15 , 20 up to 35 years in Jamaica. So when you make your monthly payments you are actually paying a portion of several things

● The total amount you borrowed – they call this the principal

● The cost for the amount you borrowed  – this is called the interest. Now this is eally how the banks make their money. So whether low or high they are in this to make a profit.

● Insurance on the home

● Insurance on the money borrowed

● Taxes

Bonus: Savings and Life Insurance
