  • No-competition lots   A lot in which the buyer's home will be constructed by a particular builder.
  • No-documentation loan   A loan application that does not require verification of income but typically is granted in cases of large down payments.

  • Non-liquid asset   An asset such as a house that is not easily turned into cash.
  • Non-recurring closing costs   Costs that are one-time only fees for such items as an appraisal, loan points, credit report, title insurance and a home inspection.
  • Note   The legal document that requires a borrower to repay a mortgage at a certain interest rate over a specified period of time.
  • Note rate   The interest rate specified in a mortgage note.
