30-Year Fixed Mortgage

When you can get a lower interest rate, you want to lock it in for the life of the loan, don’t you? Well, that’s what a 30-year fixed mortgage does. It locks your rate for 30 years.

Even if you’re not going to have your home or that particular home loan for 30-years — many borrowers get this loan. That’s because even if the future is unpredictable, your loan isn’t.

This type of mortgage loan gives you peace of mind that your payment will remain the same (unless your taxes or insurance change).

Are 30-year fixed mortgages popular?

Yes, borrowers love the 30-year fixed because it gives them predictability in their monthly budget.

Advantages of a 30-Year Fixed Mortgage

  • Lower payments – with the longer term, your payments will be lower than a 15-year mortgage.
  • Flexibility – you can pay extra on your principal if you want, but you can always pay the minimum payment if your budget is tight.
  • Budgeting – with a fixed-mortgage payment, you’ll have more control and prediction over your budget.
  • Easier qualifying – with lower payments, it’s possible to qualify for a larger loan amount so you can get the home you want.
  • More breathing room – with a lower house payment, you’ll have money for other things like private schools, travel, or investing.
