4x3 Best mortgage and refinance rates daily orange

Summary List Placement 

Mortgage rates have decreased since last Sunday. Refinance rates are also down, except for 10-year fixed terms, which have stayed the same.

Rates are low in general right now. You’ll probably get a better deal with a fixed-rate mortgage than an adjustable-rate mortgage, though.

Darrin English, Senior Community Development Loan Officer at Quontic Bank, told Business Insider that adjustable-rate mortgages are less beneficial for borrowers than they used to be. ARM rates are starting higher than fixed-rate mortgages, and you’d risk your rate increasing down the road. It’s probably better to lock in a historically low interest rate now with a fixed-rate loan.

If your finances are in a good place, it could be a good time to get a fixed-rate mortgage or refinance.

How do 30-year fixed mortgage rates work?

A 30-year fixed mortgage charges a higher rate than a fixed-rate mortgage with a shorter term. For a long time, 30-year fixed rates were also higher than adjustable rates, but 30-year fixed mortgages are actually the better deal right now.

You’ll pay more in interest with a 30-year term than you would for a 15-year term, because a) the interest rate is higher, and b) you’ll be paying interest for longer.

You’ll make higher monthly payments on a 30-year term than on a shorter term, because you’re spreading out payments over a longer period of time.

How do 15-year fixed mortgage rates work?

You’ll pay a lower rate on a 15-year mortgage than on a 30-year mortgage. Between the lower rates and paying off the loan in a shorter amount of time, you’ll pay less on a 15-year mortgage over the years.

Your monthly payments will be higher on a 15-year mortgage than on a 30-year mortgage, though. You’re paying off the same principal amount in half the time, so …read more
