A fixed rate mortgage has a consistent interest rate and monthly payments that never change. This may be a good choice if you plan to stay in your home for seven years or longer. If you plan to move within seven years, then an adjustable-rate mortgage may be better. As a rule of thumb, it may be harder to qualify for a fixed rate mortgage than for adjustable rate mortgage. When interest rates are low, fixed rate mortgages are generally not that much more expensive than adjustable rate mortgages, and may be a better deal in the long run because you can lock in the rate for the life of your mortgage.
Popular ARMS – mostly 5/1 or 7/1 mortgage loans- can offer the best of both worlds: lower interest rates (like ARMs) and a fixed payment for a longer period of time than most adjustable rate mortgages. It’s a good choice for people who expect to move (or refinance) before or shortly after the adjustment occurs.
