The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has three features that make it the most popular home loan in America: the interest rate is predictable, the monthly payments never change and the long payback time results in more affordable payments. The drawback is that the interest rate will typically be higher than the rate on a shorter-term loan, so you’ll actually spend more money over the full 30 year term.
