Fixed Rate Mortgages are one of the most sought after loans on the market today. One of the main reasons people gravitate toward fixed rate mortgages is that the interest rate and monthly payment are fixed and will remain the same during the entire term of the loan. This product feature provides stability when budgeting cash flows for all monthly expenses despite possible fluctuations in the market. This helps borrowers plan their finances appropriately and brings peace of mind to those who may be new to a mortgage. 15 Year Fixed and 30 Year Fixed loans are the most common fixed rate loan types for buying or refinancing a home.
