Still undecided on getting a fixed-rate or variable-rate loan?
It all depends on your situation. Before you decide, take a look at the top reasons for getting a fixed-rate mortgage over a variable rate option.
Fixed-rates give you greater confidence that you can make your mortgage payments since they are predictable. Economic shifts have no impact whatsoever on how much you pay.
With a fixed-rate home loan, the interest rate on your loan remains the same for an agreed period -- the most common of which are 30, 20, and 15 years.
Since your interest rates remain the same over time, a fixed-rate mortgage allows you to budget the rest of your finances.
