15, 20, 30 Year Fixed Loan
30 Year Fixed
A 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 Fixed
This 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 Fixed
This 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
"Doris, you and your staff are incredible and I could never thank you enough for the help you’ve all given me through this process. You, Wendy, and especially Karen have shown me so much patience and understanding in what was a very foreign experience for me. This may sound a bit hokey to you, but I truly believe that you and your staff have been like angels supporting me through a really emotionally difficult time of my life. I’m so excited to move into our new house and even more so to create a wonderful new home for my children. Thank you again for everything!!"
"Doris, Thank you for your assistance and handling the process so efficiently and making it an enjoyable process. If you ever need a reference or have a customer survey to fill out I would be more than happy to provide you with an excellent recommendation."
"Good afternoon ladies! I just wanted to drop a note thanking you both for how well you took care of my family and I through our transaction. We usually aren't the easiest people to deal with (at least we can admit it) and you guys were helpful, friendly and committed the entire way. Should I hear about anyone looking for lending services I will certainly be a champion for Cody Financial and give them your contact information. As I was drafting this I received the flowers you sent us. Thank you for those as well. The professionalism and individual attention that you provide make for a very good business plan that will ensure success. Thanks for everything."
