Mortgage loans that offer fixed interest rates are the most
common type of loan for new home buyers. Since the interest
rates are stable, long term homeowners can budget their finances
accordingly because they will be safeguarded against rising
interest rates. Along with fixed rates that are determined by
the market, this type of loan involves little risk and offers
long term low monthly payments that are protected from the
effects of inflation.
Though appealing to most, fixed rate mortgage loans aren't for
everyone. Other types of mortgage loans allow you to borrow more
than you could with a fixed rate mortgage. If your stay in the
home that you are borrowing against is short in tenure, then you
would probably end up paying more in interest than you would if
you chose a variable rate mortgage. Finally, with fixed interest
rates, you are committed to that rate for the duration of your
mortgage, even if the market rate drops sometime in the future.
Keep in mind that the first offer you receive is not always the
best. Take your time, explore all options from many different
lenders, and decide which policy best suits your needs. It is
always okay to say "no."
