What is a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage?

A 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is a home loan that maintains the same interest rate and monthly payment over the 30-year loan period. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most common type of mortgage because it provides the security of a fixed payment and the flexibility to afford a larger mortgage loan.

When should you consider a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage?

With a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, you’ll pay the same amount every month no matter what happens to interest rates or inflation. You’ll likely get a sizable tax deduction for the interest you pay, especially in the early years of the loan, when most of your payments go toward interest. However, if you don’t plan to stay put for several years, or if you want a lower rate, a 15-year mortgage or an adjustable rate mortgage may be a better home loan for you.
