Is a 20 Year Mortgage Right for You?
The 20 year mortgage offers unique benefits that make it an attractive option for purchasing or refinancing a home. Just like the more common 30 year fixed rate mortgage, a 20 year mortgage offers the security of a fixed rate and consistent payment, making it a good choice for a first-time homebuyer mortgage. But like the shorter 15 year mortgage, a 20 year mortgage may allow borrowers to secure lower loan rates and save on a number of years of interest payments. A 20 year mortgage may be especially attractive to a homeowner who wants to refinance a mortgage and doesn’t want to extend the life of the loan with a new 30 year conventional loan.
