Financing technique aimed at those people who only plan to live in a house for a short time. Under this mortgage, a lower interest rate and, thus, a lower monthly mortgage payment are charged. Upon the selling of the house, the lender receives the deferred interest plus a fee for postponing the interest that would normally have been paid each month.
