A 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular type of home loan in America. Borrowers like the predictable interest rates and steady monthly payments. Most borrowers prefer a 30-year loan to a 15-year because of its long payback time and lower monthly payments. However, the interest rate will usually be higher than the rate on a shorter-term loan, which means you'll pay more interest over the full term of the mortgage.
