term mortgage

  

Definition

Short-term (usually for five years or less) standing mortgage in which (unlike in a term loan) the loan is not amortized over a fixed period but only interest is paid over the term of the loan. When the loan term ends (mortgage matures) the principle becomes payable as a lump sum called balloon payment.
