Get A Fixed-Rate Mortgage Loan

Shopping for the right mortgage means choosing the right type of interest rate.

Most borrowers choose between the fixed-rate mortgage and adjustable-rate mortgage. 

At Mortgage Loan Center, we help our borrowers choose the option that best fits their financial picture.

What is a Fixed-Rate Mortgage?

A fixed-rate mortgage is a loan with an interest rate that doesn’t change. It remains the same for the life of the loan until you sell or refinance. This means your principal and interest remain the same for the 15, 20, or 30-year term you choose.  Get a fixed-rate mortgage loan today!

How Does it Work?

fixed-rate mortgage loanOnce you lock in an interest rate before closing, that’s your interest rate for the life of the loan. At Mortgage Loan Center, we help you lock in the lowest interest rate you’re eligible for based on your qualifying factors (credit score, debt ratio, income, and property type).

There may be some fluctuation in your payment if you escrow your real estate taxes and homeowners insurance, but we’ll go over these details with you when you choose your loan type and term. Get a fixed-rate mortgage loan today!

Who is it Best For?

At Mortgage Loan Center, we encourage borrowers who feel this is their ‘forever’ home to choose the fixed-rate mortgage. We also encourage any borrower with a fixed income or who doesn’t see their income increasing dramatically in the future to choose the predictability of the fixed-rate loan.

If this is a temporary purchase (you’ll move in 5 years or less) or you know your income will increase significantly in the coming years, an adjustable-rate loan may be an option too. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each given your situation to help you decide. Get a fixed-rate mortgage loan today!
