You Can Always Plan Ahead with a Fixed-Rate Mortgage

A fixed-rate mortgage is the standard against which most other mortgage products are measured. Here are the differences between a 30-year and a 15-year fixed-rate.

30-Year Fixed-Rate

  • Provides the borrower with a fixed rate for the entire 30-year term of the loan
  • The borrower will pay the loan in full if he or she makes the required principal and interest payment for 30 years
  • Primary benefit: the payment is the smallest since the term is the longest

15-Year Fixed-Rate

  • You can shorten your mortgage by 15 years and usually get a lower interest rate
  • Advantage: you’ll build more equity in your home sooner than you would with a 30-year loan
  • Higher monthly payments
