Real Estate Definitions

These are definitions related to real estate. The definitions can be very helpful in understanding much of the confusion that comes over people when they are trying to understand what a realtor or a loan officer might be saying. If you have any other words you may need defined, do not hesitate to call me at 608-219-8014.

National Association of Realtors (NAR): A real estate trade organization that sets the standards for integrity and honesty within the real estate profession nationwide.

Negative amortization: A gradual increase in the balance of a loan or mortgage which occurs because the monthly payments made are too small to cover the entire principal and interest charges; this shortfall amount is added to the remaining balance, resulting in negative amortization.

Net listing: The advertisement of the price of property for sale in terms of the net price the seller will receive, once the property is sold, a type of listing which is illegal in many states.

Net worth: The total value of all of an individual's assets, minus all liabilities or debts.

No cash-out refinance: A transaction for refinancing a mortgage in which the new mortgage amount is limited to the sum total of the remaining balance of the first mortgage, points, closing costs, whatever is required to satisfy any liens that are more than one year old and other funds for the borrower's use (as long as the amount is one percent or less of the principal amount of the new mortgage).

Notary: An individual authorized by law to certify documents and signatures.

Note: A legal document that obligates a borrower to repay a loan or owed sum of money at a stated interest rate over a designated period of time.
