- Conventional Fixed Rate have a fixed principal and interest payment for the entire life of the loan. It’s easy to budget for this type of loan because your payment will always be the same. The rate on a fixed rate mortgage loan is generally higher than an adjustable rate mortgage.
- Conventional Adjustable Rate Loans usually start with lower rates than fixed rate loans. We’ll let you know how much the rate can be adjusted over the life of the loan, so you’ll know from the beginning the absolute maximum amount you would ever have to pay. If you will be moving or paying off your loan in a few years, or if you think interest rates will decline, you’ll want to consider an adjustable rate since monthly payments may be lower.
- FHA, VA, and USDA Loans offer lower interest rates and require a relatively small down payment.
