What is a Fixed-Rate Mortgage?

A fixed-rate mortgage is a home loan with an interest rate that stays the same for the entire term of the loan. Whether your loan term is 15, 20, or 30 years, you'll have the peace of mind knowing your interest rate won't change.

How Do Fixed-Rate Mortgages Work?

With a fixed-rate mortgage, your monthly payment is divided into two parts: principal and interest. The principal is the amount you borrowed, and the interest is what the lender charges for lending you the money. Because your rate is fixed, these payments remain consistent over time.
