The biggest benefit of a fixed rate mortgage is the fact that the interest rate will not change over time. Your interest rate and principal payment will be locked in for the entire life of your loan. They will never increase, even if the market rates change. This gives you peace of mind and allows you to budget your finances for a consistent, fixed payment over the duration of your loan.

Other benefits include:

  • Competitive interest rates
  • Easier-to-understand loan terms and paperwork

An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) is a mortgage in which the interest rate may change over time. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the interest rate may change periodically, usually in relation to an index such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), and payments may “adjust” up or down accordingly. Unlike a fixed rate mortgage, homeowners with this type of home loan aren’t guaranteed the same interest rate for the duration of their loan. The risk of an increasing interest rate is something that borrowers should take into account when considering an adjustable rate mortgage for their home financing.

Because the borrower assumes more risk with this type of mortgage, adjustable rate mortgages offer prospective homeowners some notable benefits.
 
Adjustable rate mortgages may offer lower initial interest rates and monthly payments than fixed rate mortgages in exchange for possible future rate adjustments. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the initial interest rate is fixed for a set period, such as 3 to 10 years, and the interest rate adjusts up or down depending on market conditions after that.

VA loans are a special type of home mortgage reserved for active military members and veterans. These home loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and offered by participating approved lenders. VA loans allow eligible veterans and active military personnel to realize their home buying dreams and help existing VA loan homeowners with money-saving refinance options.

VA loans are designed to provide long-term home financing to qualified active duty military and veterans and, in some cases, their surviving unmarried spouses. 

VA loans offer several additional advantages over other types of mortgages, including: 

  • 100% financing option is available - no down payment required
  • 30- and 15-year fixed rate loans
  • No private mortgage insurance requirements
  • Those with less than perfect credit can apply
