balloon mortgage
USA
A mortgage loan that calls for full payment of the remaining principal balance at a specified point in time. For example, an agreement for a loan that amortizes (amortization) as if paid over 30 years can call for full payment after ten years. The final lump sum due when a balloon mortgage terminates is called a balloon payment.
