    Fixed Rate Mortgage Solutions

    Couple on their front steps who just used a fixed rate mortgage to buy a home.With a fixed rate mortgage, a loan's note rate remains constant throughout the life of the mortgage. This consistency gives borrowers peace of mind knowing that the principal and interest portion of their mortgage payment will not change over time.

    While the total principal and interest payment does not vary, the amount applied to each portion will change over time. During the beginning of a loan, the majority of one's payment will go to covering interest and a small portion will be used to reduce the loan's principal balance. Over time, the amount that goes toward principal increases and the amount allocated to interest goes down. With most fixed rate mortgages, borrowers can make additional principal reduction payments without penalty which allows them to pay off their loans faster. Make sure to ask your mortgage professional if there are any prepayment penalties associated with their fixed rate products.

    Why Consider a Fixed Rate Mortgage?

    • Rate is fixed through the term of the loan.
    • Monthly principal and interest payment does not change which can simplify the budgeting process.
    • In low rate environment, fixed interest rates are often in line with or better than the introductory rates found with adjustable rate products.
