Money's daily mortgage rates are a national average and reflect what a borrower with a 20% down payment and a 700 credit score — roughly the national average score — might pay if he or she applied for a home loan right now. Each day's rates are based on the average rate 8,000 lenders offered to applicants the previous business day. Freddie Mac's weekly rates will generally be lower since they measure rates offered to borrowers with higher credit scores.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most common home loan in America. The long payback time and predictable interest rate mean your monthly payments will be relatively low and will always remain the same. Compared to a shorter-term loan, however, the 30-year is the more expensive in terms of overall borrowing costs because you'll pay a higher rate for a longer period of time.
