15 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage

15 Year fixed rate mortgages are Fannie Mae 's flagship products, since many consumers prefer the stability of both a fixed interest rate and a fixed payment over the life of the loan.


You pay off a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage in half the time it would take you to pay off the traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. This shorter term makes it possible for you to build up equity in your home faster, which can let you move up more quickly to a more expensive home or save more in preparation for retirement or a child's education. This loan is particularly attractive if you're refinancing your mortgage because you can shorten your loan term plus enjoy a lower interest rate. Fifteen-year mortgages are usually offered at interest rates lower than those available with 30-year mortgages. However, higher monthly payments may make it more difficult to qualify for the 15-year fixed-rate mortgage compared to the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.

Key Features
  • A 15-year mortgage offers a lower interest rate than a 30- or 20-year mortgage. This saves you a significant amount of interest over the life of the loan. For example, with a $100,000 loan at 8.25 percent interest, the 15-year mortgage will save you $95,000 in interest payments over the life of your loan, compared to the same mortgage amount for a 30-year term. However, monthly mortgage payments will be higher.
  • The shorter-term allows you to own your home outright sooner.


Consumer Benefits

  • Lock in a long-term interest rate with a stable, predictable monthly payment
  • Borrowers who want to build equity faster should select the shortest loan term they can afford
Shorter loan term carries a lower interest rate, helping borrowers to save in interest cost over the life of the loan
