Why Choose a Fixed-Rate

  • You expect your income to remain the same in the coming years.
  • You don't plan on moving for the foreseeable future.
  • You want the security of fixed rates and payments that will only change if taxes and insurance change.

Let's Take a Look at Your Options:

Fixed-rate loans are available for 10-, 12-, 15-, 20-, or 30-year terms. What's the best length for your situation? Here are some things to think about:

  • Total interest you want to pay over the term. The total cost of interest on a 30-year loan is higher than the interest cost of a shorter loan. With a 30-year loan, you have lower monthly payments, but a higher rate.
  • Your ability to make a higher monthly payment. With a shorter term you pay the loan off faster, but you need to be able to afford higher payments. A 10-, 15-, or 20-year term will also save you thousands in interest over a 30-year loan.
