Fixed-rate mortgages (FRMs) provide predictability as the principal and interest of the loan remain the same throughout the term. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular home loan program to finance a home. It’s easy to qualify for and has low monthly payments. While with a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage you’ll save money on interest charges and build your equity faster. At Ark, we offer 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30-year FRMs.
