If you’re a homebuyer looking for a stable way to finance your home purchase, a Fixed-Rate Mortgage is a perfect home loan option for you.
If you appreciate consistency in life, a fixed-rate mortgage may be right for you. With so much uncertainty with many financial decisions, it can be a comfort to know that your mortgage rate will never change for the life of the loan. Choose a mortgage term that's typically anywhere between 15-30 years. Enjoy a stable monthly mortgage payment while also paying the least amount of interest over time.
Many individuals and families choose a fixed-rate mortgage for the following reasons:
Whether you decide on a 15-year fixed mortgage, 30-year, or somewhere in between, there are benefits and drawbacks. Meet with one of the knowledgeable mortgage lenders at Central Bank to determine which mortgage term is right for you.
Choosing a 15-year fixed mortgage is great for individuals and families looking to quickly pay off their mortgage while paying the least amount of interest possible. The drawback to a shorter mortgage term is that your payments will be higher. If paying less interest is important to you, be sure to check that your finances will support a higher mortgage payment.
With 30-year fixed mortgages, individuals and families often go for them because the payments are lower. The trade-off is a longer mortgage term and paying more interest over time. However, many households prefer 30-year fixed mortgages because they have the security of a lower house payment and still have the option to put more money toward the principal each month without penalty.
