What is a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage?

A 15-year fixed-rate mortgage maintains the same interest rate and monthly payment over the 15-year loan period. The 15 year fixed-rate mortgage allows the borrower to pay off the mortgage faster and typically has a low interest rate. But monthly payments are usually higher than with other mortgages.

When should you consider a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage?

For most buyers, the main draw of a 15-year fixed-rate loan is the low interest rates and paying off your mortgage faster. It also offers stability and peace of mind because your monthly payment won’t change no matter what happens to inflation or market interest rates. However, remember that your monthly payments will be much higher and the loan may be harder to qualify for.
