Frank begins speaking about mortgage terms and what the word "term" means.
Mortgage Term - Is the number of years or months over which you pay a specific interest rate. Term usually ranges from 6 months to 10 years.
This should not be confused with the amoritization period this is the time over which all regular payments would pay off the mortgage. This is usually 25 years for a new mortgage, however can be greater, depending on the lender.
Frank then discusses the difference between fixed rate vs variable rate mortgages.
Fixed Rate Mortgages - Is when a mortgage for which the rate of interest is fixed for a specific period of time (the term).
Variable Rate Mortgages - Is when a mortgage for which the rate of interest may change if other market conditions change. This is sometimes referred to as a floating rate mortgage.
