A mortgage is a loan that you take out from a bank or other lending institution in order to purchase or refinance a home.
The terms of the mortgage credit in Paraguay (which is also known as credito hipotecario paraguay in Spanish language) will depend on the type of mortgage that you take out, but typically you will need to provide a down payment (the amount of money you put down as your initial investment), pay monthly payments (usually beginning one or two months after you sign the mortgage), and usually have a fixed-term mortgage that will end at some point in the future.

If you choose to take out a mortgage with a "subprime" lender, this could mean higher interest rates and may also result in reduced amounts of available loan funds.
There are several ways to get a mortgage. You can apply directly with a lender, or through a broker or financial advisor. You can also find lenders who specialize in mortgages for specific types of properties, such as homes or condos.
The cost of a mortgage will vary depending on your credit score, how much money you want to borrow, and the type of mortgage you choose. The average cost of a standard 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is around 5%.
A mortgage gives you more stability in your housing situation. If you can't afford the payments or the terms of your loan change, the mortgage lender is obligated to work with you to find a solution.
A mortgage allows you to borrow more money than you would if you were purchasing outright. This means that you'll have enough money available to cover any shortfall in your budget.
