What is a Fixed-Rate Mortgage?

A fixed-rate mortgage is a loan that has a static interest rate over the life of the loan. You can compare this with an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) where interest rates change over time.


Because of the consistency and affordability of the loan’s interest rate over time, fixed-rate loans are ideal for first-time homebuyers, borrowers looking to buy their next home and for those who want to refinance an existing mortgage.


Global Equity Finance can work with you to determine which fixed-rate mortgage is best suited to your needs.

Fixed-Rate Mortgage Qualifications

Credit preapproval: Getting preapproved for a loan has several benefits that make buying a home quicker and easier. The process will save you time as it helps you immediately identify which loans fit your budget. It can also shorten the closing process, which means your loan can get funded sooner. Lastly, preapproval can improve your credibility with lenders, letting them know upfront how qualified you are for a mortgage.


Documentation: When choosing a fixed-rate mortgage to refinance an existing mortgage, you will need proof of income and employment history along with copies of your homeowner’s insurance, bank account statements, 401k and record of any investments you have made.
