Fixed Rate Mortgage offers variety of loans designed to meet a real estate investor’s needs. One of the products offered which remained popular over the years is the fixed rate mortgage.

Would-be borrowers choose fixed rate mortgages for the following reasons:

  • It safeguards borrowers from the rise and fall of home loan rates.
  • Unlike ARM which is affected by an increase in the interest rate, FRM remains the same allowing borrowers to save money in the long run.
  • Borrowers are able to set payments because of the fixed payment throughout the course of the loan.

Since the payment is pre-determined, it is much easier for borrowers to pay the amortization. It allows borrowers to set aside funds for this specific loan. ARM is difficult to foresee because rates rise and fall from time to time. What makes FRM ideal is that it safeguards borrowers from the rising interest rates. In the past, home owners were affected by foreclosures due to the unexpected rise in the interest rates. Those who were under FRM were saved from the 2007 mortgage meltdown.
