15, 20, 30 Year Fixed Loan
30 Year FixedA 30 year fixed conventional loan is a loan that has the same mortgage payments for 360 months.
Conventional loans typically are harder to qualify for than FHA loans and require a slightly higher down payment. However, in some cases rates can be lower and have lower closing costs. Also, monthly mortgage insurance is usually less or can be nothing with 20% down payment.
20 Year FixedThis type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 240 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid slightly faster than the 30 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the 30 year fixed rate loan. Some Lenders allow for a lessor rate.
15 Year FixedThis type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 180 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid faster than either the 30 year fixed rate loan or the 20 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the other two loans. Generally, the longer a lender agrees to keep the interest rate "fixed", the greater the risk to the lender, therefore, in most instances, interest rates on 15 year fixed rate loans are slightly lower than on 20 or 30 year fixed rate loans.

Our Happy Clients
"I just closed a loan via Steve Oka and it only took about three weeks. I communicated with him via phone and email and fax and everything went smoothly with no snags. He was professional on every level but frankly what I care about the most is he delivered what he said he would. He never tried to change the terms on me or do anything sneeky or questionable. I would use him again in a heartbeat. In fact Steve if the rates go down substantially lower call me and I'll refi again with. Thanks Deborah "
