Who Are 30-Year Fixed Loans Best For?

If you want to make lower monthly payments and plan to stay in your home for a long time, a 30-year fixed could be the ideal option for you.

The 30-year fixed is also great for people who want the option to pay more than the required amount at any time – and the predictability of a fixed interest rate.

How Do 30-Year Fixed Loans Work?

With a 30-year fixed rate loan, you’ll make the same monthly payment over 30 years.

Want to pay the loan off more quickly to save on interest? You can make additional payments against your principal balance at any time without penalty.

30-Year Fixed Loan Benefits

  • Your monthly payments will be less for a 30–year fixed loan than a 15-year fixed loan, even though interest rates for a 15-year fixed loan are generally a little lower. That’s because your payments will be spread out over a longer period.
  • You can pay off your mortgage at any time without prepayment penalties.
  • You may be able to avoid mortgage insurance with a down payment of 20% or higher.
  • Your interest rate is fixed for the life of the loan, so you don’t have to worry about rates rising.
  • You can buy your primary home with as little as 3% down.
  • You can refinance your primary home for up to 97% of its value.

Mortgage Insurance Requirements

You’ll have to pay primary mortgage insurance (PMI) with your 30-year fixed rate loan if your down payment is less than 20%.

  • This typically costs between 0.5% and 1% of your loan amount per year, spread over 12 payments.
  • Once you reach 20% equity in your home, you may be able to request to cancel PMI.
  • PMI is often canceled automatically once you reach 22% equity.
