30 Year Fixed

This mortgage is fixed for the entire 30 year term of the loan. This is the most conservative mortgage available providing absolute rate stability but most likely a substantially higher rate than ARM’s or hybrids such as the five year or three year mortgages. This loan does not have a prepayment penalty and does not have negative amortization.

15 Year Fixed

This mortgage is fixed for the entire 15 year term of the loan. This is the most conservative mortgage available providing absolute rate stability but most likely a substantially higher rate than ARM’s or hybrids such as the five year or three year mortgages. This loan provides a substantially higher payment than the 30 year fixed but pays off in half the time. Significantly less interest will be paid over time. However, securing a 30 year fixed and investing the payment difference elsewhere (e.g. Stock or Ira) might be a wiser investment decision (see your financial adviser). This loan does not have a prepayment penalty and does not have negative amortization.
