30 Year Fixed Loan Program
The 30-year fixed interest rate is one of the most desirable loan programs in the nation. Most people choose this mortgage option because of the lower monthly payments and long, steady repayment period. It is also the easiest fixed rate loan to qualify for! In a volatile mortgage market like we've seen for the past few years, many homeowners want the comfort of knowing their monthly mortgage payment will remain consistent. Of course, because of the long term, a borrower does end up paying significantly more interest to the lender over time, but for most homeowner's the lower monthly obligation is a positive trade-off. The lower monthly payment leaves more cash in your pocket for other monthly expenses. This type of mortgage is recommended for borrowers who intend to stay in their house for a long period of time.
