The two have very little, if any, to do with each other.

Buying property is just that.
Liens have to do with positions on the title to property, 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.
In the event of a foreclosure the 1st lien is 1st to get paid.
If there is any money left over then the 2nd lien gets paid, and so on.
