If you’re looking to live in your home for the long haul, then a 30 year mortgage might be the best fit. Keep in mind; however, that even though your payment may be somewhat smaller, the interest rate will be higher and you’ll end up paying more in interest over time.
With a 15 year mortgage, your interest rate will be lower which means you’ll pay your principal off faster and pay less in interest.

The difference between a Fixed-Rate Mortgage and an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage is that a fixed-rate mortgage has a fixed-interest rate for the life of the loan; whereas, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) has an interest rate that varies. Sometimes an ARM will start at a lower interest rate than fixed rate mortgages and fluctuate depending on the PRIME rate.
No two situations are the same, so it’s hard to estimate how long your loan process will take. Some of the factors that affect the timeline include the type and terms of the home loan you’re requesting, the types of documentation required in order to secure the loan and the amount of time it takes to provide your lender with those documents.
