How a Fixed Loan Works
A fixed-rate mortgage is a fully amortizing mortgage loan where the interest rate on the note remains the same through the term of the loan, as opposed to loans where the interest rate may adjust or “float”. As a result, payment amounts and the duration of the loan are fixed and the person who is responsible for paying back the loan benefits from a consistent, single payment and the ability to plan a budget based on this fixed cost.
- 30-, 20- and 15-year terms are all available with fixed rates
- Refinance up to 95% of your primary home’s value
30-Year Fixed Rate Example: Loan Amount for $291,000 with a 30-Year Fixed interest rate of 4.25% (4.3% APR), would have a monthly payment of $1,934.20 (includes taxes & insurance).
15-Year Fixed Rate Example: Loan Amount for $220,560 with a 15-Year Fixed interest rate of 3.25% (3.39% APR), would have a monthly payment of $2,057.74 (includes taxes & insurance).
