How Do 25-Year Fixed Mortgages Work?

A 25-year mortgage is a term you might not typically see. With a 25-year fixed, you'll pay off your home loan over 25 years instead of the standard 15 or 30 years.
Since it's a fixed mortgage, you can count on the same principal and interest rate for the life of the loan.

How Do I Qualify For A 25-Year Fixed Mortgage?

  • General minimum 3% - 3.5% down payment

  • 3% - 6% of the purchase price to cover closing costs
  • You'll pay monthly mortgage insurance premiums if you have an FHA loan. If the loan is conventional, you’ll generally pay for private mortgage insurance if your down payment or equity amount is less than 20%.

25-Year Mortgage Insurance Requirements

Putting less than 20% down on your conventional 25-year fixed loan will mean you’ll need to pay primary mortgage insurance (PMI).

  • PMI generally adds 0.5% - 1% to the cost of your mortgage each year.
  • PMI costs get divided into monthly payments.
  • You  can request to have your PMI canceled on a conventional loan after you achieve 20% equity in your home, but it will typically be canceled automatically when you reach 22%.

If you’re getting an FHA loan, you’ll pay an upfront mortgage insurance premium of 1.75%. If you have a down payment of 10% or more, you’ll pay mortgage insurance premiums monthly for 11 years. Otherwise, you pay them for the life of the loan.
