Fixed Rate Mortgages
A fixed rate mortgage is a mortgage that has the same interest rate (“fixed) for the entire life of the loan. The major benefit of a fixed rate mortgage is that the interest rate and monthly payment will be the same throughout the loan term, which means less financial stress and uncertainty for the buyer. This type of loan can be especially beneficial when market interest rates are in flux.
This type of mortgage most commonly comes with 15 or 30 year terms, although there are other shorter-term options available.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMS)
An adjustable rate mortgage is a type of mortgage with an interest rate that is not fixed. This means the interest rate on the loan can change periodically after the initial fixed rate period, usually each year. A changing interest rate will affect the buyer’s monthly payment. A benefit of an ARM is that buyers can potentially pay less in interest if market interest rates are expected to fall.
