Fixed Rate Loans
This type of mortgage maintains its original interest rate over the life of the loan, which means your monthly payment will remain the same. Fixed Rate Mortgages typically come in 10, 15, 20 and 30-year terms. A fixed rate loan may be a good choice if you:
- Plan to stay in this home for at least 10 years
- Want the security of knowing what your mortgage payment will always be
- Don’t expect your income to increase significantly in the coming years
Adjustable Rate Loans
An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a loan that is subject to rate changes based on market conditions. Typically, these loans offer a lower initial rate, which can translate to a lower monthly payment. An ARM may be a good choice if you:
- Want to maximize your buying power
- Plan to move in the next 10 years
- Plan to pay off your mortgage within 10 years
- Expect your income to increase over the coming years
- Need or want lower payments at the beginning of the loan
First-time homebuyers no longer tend to stay in their “starter” home for 30 years and experienced homeowners often plan to pay off their mortgage long before the 30-year maturity date. Both of these types of borrowers may benefit from choosing an ARM product with an initial fixed rate period.
