Fee reimbursements generally depend on each lender’s policy, as well as the type of loan you have applied for.

Understanding the Loan Option

According, Knowing which type of loan is best for your situation prepares you to talk to lenders and get the best deal.

A loan “option” is always made up of three different things:

term of the loan

Interest rate type

Type of loan

In general, the longer your loan term, the more interest you will pay. Short-term loans generally have lower interest charges but higher monthly payments than longer-term loans. But a lot depends on the specifics – the exact reduction in interest charges and the increase in monthly payments depends on the loan terms you are considering as well as the interest rate.

What there is to know

Shorter terms will generally save you money overall, but will have higher monthly payments.

There are two reasons why shorter durations can save you money:

You borrow money and pay interest for a shorter term.

The interest rate is usually lower, up to a full percentage point.

Rates vary between lenders, especially for shorter terms. Explore rates for different loan terms to see if you’re getting a good deal. Always compare official loan offers before making your decision.

What there is to know

Your monthly payments are more likely to be stable with a fixed rate loan, so you may prefer this option if you value certainty in your loan costs over the long term. With a fixed rate loan, your interest rate and monthly principal and interest payment will remain the same. Your total monthly payment can still change, for example if your property taxes, home insurance or mortgage insurance go up or down.

Variable rate mortgages offer less predictability, but can be cheaper in the short term. You may want to consider this option if, for example, you plan to move again during the initial fixed period of an ARM. In this case, future rate adjustments may not affect you. However, if you stay in your home longer than expected, you may end up paying a lot more. In the later years of an ARM, your interest rate changes based on the market, and your monthly principal and interest payment can increase significantly or even double.

Explore rates for different types of interest rates and see for yourself how the initial interest rate on an ARM compares to the rate on a fixed rate mortgage.

Understanding Adjustable Rate Mortgages

Most ARMs have two periods. During the first period, your interest rate is fixed and will not change. During the second period, your rate goes up and down steadily as the market moves.
