">Open Mortgage

« Back to Glossary Index

In contrast to a closed mortgage, an open mortgage can be repaid or refinanced at any point during its term without penalty. Borrowers pay for the flexibility of an open mortgage with a higher rate.

Spy Tip: At today’s rates, open mortgages generally don’t make sense if you plan to hold a mortgage for longer than 6-9 months.
