A first mortgage is the primary loan that is used to finance your purchase of a home. First mortgages have priority over any other liens or claims on a property should the mortgage default.
First mortgages are secured by the property you purchase them with. The lender will hold the primary lien on your property until you’ve paid the mortgage off in full. Keep in mind that your “first” mortgage refers to the first mortgage taken on one particular property. That means if you purchase 5 properties with 5 different mortgages, you have 5 first mortgages. “First mortgage” simply refers to the primary mortgage on a property and gives the lender the primary lien on the property.
If you purchase 5 properties with 5 different mortgages, you have 5 first mortgages.
