A mortgage is a method of using property to secure payment for debts. When you want to purchase a house that you cannot pay in full for, you'll need to secure a mortgage (loan) from your bank. Then you will be allowed to make monthly payments to the bank for your home. The word mortgage, with intriguing roots in archaic Norman languages and meaning "death vow," commonly refers to this mortgage loan.

Arranging for insurance is a way of preparing to manage the risks involved in property ownership, at least in this case. Premiums are paid to your insurer or insurance company in exchange for a certain amount of insurance coverage, should something happen to your property.

Both the mortgage and insurance are necessities when getting involved in property transactions. To purchase a home when you cannot pay in full right up front, you will need to qualify for a mortgage loan. Remember, though, that before you try to qualify for such a loan you should definitely check up on and attend to any problems in your credit history, to avoid unpleasant surprises getting in your way.

Property-owners' Insurance is a necessity, especially on Hilton Head Island. Although Hilton Head is a safe, beautiful and luxurious place to own a home, its location on the water poses a few potential risks in the event of large storms, floods, or other natural disasters. The island has no recent history of huge storm damage, but with other states' recent disasters lingering in memory, property insurance is a comfort.
