A package mortgage allows home buyers to pledge household items of personal property, in addition to the real estate, as security for a loan. For instance, lending institutions may allow items such as ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers or air conditioners to serve as security, thereby allowing the home buyer to finance major appliances over the term of the loan at relatively low mortgage interest rates. This practice allows lenders to increase the amount of a loan with no added administrative costs and little additional risk. It allows buyers to purchase home appliances and other major items of equipment they may otherwise might not be able to afford.
