The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular home loan in America. The long payback time and constant interest rate result in relatively low monthly payments and long-term stability. However, the interest rate will be higher compared to a shorter-term loan, which combined with the longer term means your overall costs will be higher than on a shorter-term loan.
