A bond is a written agreement between two parties in which a party gives money to the other one and receives a certain amount of interest for every month or once a year and the guaranty of the interest and return of the loan capital is backed with the secure document known as the bond.
Introduction to the Mortgage Bond:
When an investor invests money in the real estate property in forms of bonds, this is known as the mortgage bond. In simple words, when you invest in the mortgage bond, you actual or capital investment is saved by the pledge of the property as collateral and you receive interest from the payments of the mortgage installments by the debtors. In case your mortgage bond defaults or you don’t receive any more interest rate on the bond anymore, you have the opportunity of selling the collateral and regenerating your capital investment. When you get a bond from a bank, you give money to the bank and the bank invests the money in different companies or business or lends it to individuals and organizations on interest rate. Later, a certain percentage of that interest rate is received by the investor as profit where on the other hand, in case of mortgage bond, the investor receives the interest rate or profit from the mortgage payments made by the debtors or loaners.
Difference between Corporate and Mortgage Bond:
Usually people assume that a mortgage bond and a corporate bond are similar but in reality, there is a huge difference in these bonds. First of all, the corporate bond doesn’t have any insurance or guaranty other than the statement or promise made by the corporation where on the other hand, the mortgage bond is more secured as there is the property pledged as the collateral and if the capital investment defaults, the investor has the opportunity of selling the collateral and regenerating his capital investment amount. Secondly, the corporate bonds have higher interest rate and yield amount because there is more risk is involved in these bonds as there is no collateral or guaranty of the investment where on the other hand, the mortgage bonds have lower yield and interest rate because of lack of risk and more security of safe and secure return of the capital investment in case the bond defaults.
Types of Mortgage Bonds:
Mortgage Z bond:
This is very rare and usually investors don’t like this type of mortgage bond because of the reason that here you won’t get the interest payments until the bond is matured or expired. It is different from a traditional mortgage bond because it is secured with the payments coming for multiple mortgage loan plans owned by multiple people.
Mortgage Revenue Bond:
This is the most common type of mortgage bond that is being used these days. In this mortgage bond, the capital investment is secured by the revenue on the mortgage payments of the properties lien in the process. Here the interest rate is lower than the corporate bonds but the capital investment is secured by the collateral of the mortgage property.
