Mortgage Note? Promissory Note? What’s the difference? Check out my good friend Nevin Williams’ post for the clear definitions of a Note and what it means in the real estate transaction!
While you’re at it take a peek at the latest interest rates. Mortgage rates are fantastic at this point so why wait? With mortgage rates this low and, if you are a first time homebuyer, add in the $8,000 Tax Credit, you are able to buy more home for your money than most any other time in recent history!
There are some beautiful homes for sale in Wake Forest NC of all price points, styles and can fit any family profile! I would welcome the opportunity to be your advocate as a Buyer’s Agent and help you find that home of your dreams in Wake Forest NC!
And, if you need a great mortgage broker to help you get started with the pre-qualification and to help you understand the mechanics of obtaining a loan I can’t recommend Nevin Williams with First Priority any more than I already do – he works wonders and is a complete joy to work with!

Below are this morning’s mortgage rates for North Carolina but first I want to provide you the definition of a note and why it is so important to review it before signing your final loan documents.
A mortgage note is a promissory note (Definition below) associated with a specific mortgage loan; it’s a written promise to repay a specified sum of money plus interest at a specified rate and length of time to fulfill the promise. While the mortgage itself pledges the title to real property as security for a loan, the mortgage note states the amount of debt and the rate of interest, and makes the borrower who signs the note personally responsible for repayment.
A promissory note, referred to as a note payable in accounting, or commonly, just a “note” is a contract where one party (the maker or issuer) makes an unconditional promise in writing to pay a sum of money to the other (the payee), either at a fixed or determinable future time or on demand of the payee, under specific terms. They differ from IOUs in that they contain a specific promise to pay, rather than simply acknowledging that a debt exists.)
It is critical to review your note before signing it to make sure it is accurate. In North Carolina it is the closing attorney’s responsibility to review this with the borrower(s), however mistakes can be made since the attorney was not involved in the rate lock and loan itself. We always review the note and the HUD1 with our customers as part of our service.
