The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular home loan in America thanks to its long payback time and lower monthly payments. The predictability that comes with a fixed rate is also an attractive feature. A potential disadvantage is that the rate will be higher than the rate on a shorter-term loan, so you'll spend more.
