Is a 15-year fixed loan right for me?
This is the best option if you can afford the higher fixed monthly payments and want to pay off your loan balance at a fast pace. This will help you build equity quickly and, if you plan on staying in the home indefinitely, help you achieve financial freedom.
When is a 15-year fixed not the best choice?
You need to be absolutely certain you can afford the higher payments for the life of the loan. Also, make sure you look several years down the road as well. Do you earn variable income such as bonus or commissions that could be lower in the future? If there is any doubt, go with a 20 or 30-year fixed that offers a lower payment. Remember, you can always pay extra principal every month.
