Where To Get 20 Year Mortgage Rates

When you’re ready to buy a house, it’s easy to get caught up in all of the excitement of shopping and forget about the financial part. Once you’ve found the perfect house, the first thing you may be wondering is where to get 20-year mortgage rates. First Bank can help you determine what type of mortgage works best for you, and help structure a loan that meets your individual needs.

What are 20-Year Mortgage Rates?

20-year mortgages are typically offered as fixed-rate mortgages, meaning your interest rate—and your total monthly payment of principal and interest—will stay the same for the entire term of the loan. A fixed-rate mortgage offers a predictable monthly payment, making it easier for you to follow your budget. With fixed-rate mortgages, you also have the option to take them out in 15 or 30-year terms.

While a 20-year mortgage helps you pay off your home faster and build equity quicker than longer-term fixed-rate mortgages, a 15-year mortgage will help you pay it off even faster, and pay less interest. However, 15-year mortgages have higher payments than other longer-term mortgages. Additionally, 30-year fixed-rate mortgages allow you to pay off your loan with lower monthly payments, but since the life of the loan is longer, you’ll pay more interest and build equity slower than you would with a shorter-term loan.

Visit Your Local First Bank
