The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most common type of home loan in America. The long payback time means the monthly payments on a 30-year loan will be more affordable than on shorter term loans. The steady interest rate ensures those payments will remain predictable. The downside is that the interest rate will be higher compared to a shorter-term loan, resulting in higher overall borrowing costs.
