The most popular kind of mortgage

February 14, 2017 | Morgage Loan, Real Estate Investment

Question of the day: there are many different options when it comes to your mortgage plan. A fixed mortgage means that the interest rates remain the same throughout the life of the loan.

“These loans are the most popular, they represent 75% of all home loans”(Mortgagecalculator.org) These mortgages come in terms 30, 15, and 10 year plans. The most popular of these are the 30 year fixed option.

Even though a 15 year mortgage provides almost triple the paid equity in 5 years, so in essence you save a lot more with shorter terms, so my question is: why is the the 30 year(the longest amount of time) option the most popular?
