Students will also review several nontraditional mortgage products, such as adjustable-rate mortgages and fixed-rate mortgages with terms of 15 and 40 years. Finally, students will review mortgage laws and regulations specific to the state of Massachusetts. This course is NMLS-approved for eight hours of continuing education required for Massachusetts mortgage loan originators, as specified by the S.A.F.E. Mortgage Licensing Act and Massachusetts law.
