Why choose a Fixed Rate mortgage?
The interest rate on a fixed rate mortgage does not change during the entire duration of the loan. The monthly payments remain constant throughout the life of the loan, to the very last month when the loan is finally paid off. This is the most ordinary and uncomplicated mortgage available to homeowners today. The most common type of fixed-rate mortgage is the 30-year fixed, which amortizes over thirty years, with the majority of early payments going toward interest, and the bulk of later payments going toward principal. The next most popular term for a fixed mortgage is the 15-year fixed loan, which amortizes over fifteen years, bumping up monthly mortgage payments significantly, but reducing the amount of interest paid throughout the duration of the loan considerably. There are also fixed rate mortgage programs with 10 and 20 and 25 year terms, but they are less popular.
Fixed-rate mortgages are beneficial for a number of reasons, though the fact that your mortgage payment will never change is clearly paramount. Fixed rate mortgage borrowers won’t need to worry too much about where the market is headed either, though it’s wise to monitor interest rates in case a sizable interest rate drop makes it favorable to refinance. Put simply, the fixed rate mortgage is a good choice for the borrower that actually wants to pay off their mortgage, and plans to stay in the home (and with the mortgage) for the foreseeable future, plus, fixed rate mortgages are a good choice for a wide range of borrowers because of the relative low risk and lack of surprise.
With fixed mortgage rates at historic lows, there couldn’t be a better time to obtain one for the long term!
