• Fixed-Rate loans are the most popular type of mortgage loan because the loan is based on an interest rate and monthly Principle / Interest payment that does not change over time. The property taxes and insurance costs may fluctuate, but many borrowers find fixed-rate home loans to be the best mortgage for their needs because they can create a budget and rely on a steady payment. Fixed-rate mortgages are offered on all Conventional, FHA, VA and Jumbo loan products.

    Most company’s offer fixed-rate mortgages in terms of 15 or 30-years, however, you can ask for alternatives such as 10 or 20 year terms. The longer the term, the higher the interest rate will be. The longer term however, generally creates a lower payment because the payback is spread out over more years.
