Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary

Land Contract:

A type of mortgage in which the seller retains the original loan and the buyer makes monthly payments to the seller to cover the amount of the original loan and any new mortgage. No transfer of title occurs until the loan is fully paid, and thus no equity is established until the debt is completely paid off. Most loans of this type have below-market interest rates and a balloon payment of principal at the end of the term.
