Mortgage rates today continued to fall for 30- and 15-year fixed loans, by 1 and 3 basis points, respectively. Meanwhile, 5/1 ARMs held steady, according to a NerdWallet survey of current mortgage rates published by national lenders Friday morning.
Borrowers who are looking for the stability of a fixed-rate loan but with a shorter repayment period should consider a 15-year fixed mortgage. While your monthly payments will be higher due to the shorter term, 15-year fixed loans come with a much lower interest rate compared to their 30-year counterparts, saving you on interest costs over the loan’s lifetime.
However, you’ll need to ensure your monthly budget can handle the higher fixed payments that come with a shorter-term mortgage. Keep in mind that a higher monthly payment could mean you can’t contribute as much to other financial goals, such as retirement and an emergency savings fund, as you could with a longer-term loan.
