What is a 5 year fixed rate?

The term “5 year fixed rate” is made up of two parts: thelength of time and the type of mortgage.



The length of term is how long you agree to a certain set ofconditions for your mortgage, and the type of mortgage dictates the interestrate you’ll pay. A fixed rate mortgage means that the interest rate won’tchange throughout the duration of the term (in this case, five years.)

When the term ends, your mortgage isn’t paid off. The end ofa term means you’ll have to get a new term, with new conditions and interestrates.

 

 

Who is a 5-yearfixed term best for?

There are a couple reasons to go for a 5-year fixed term:

1.      You want to strike a balance between locking ina low rate and taking advantage of future rate drops

2.      You want a simple monthly payment for budgetingpurposes

3.      You are worried that rates will rise soon

4.      They are often the cheapest term option, after1-year terms

 

However, there are a few downsides to this as well:

1.      If rates go down, you’re stuck paying a higherrate

2.      They can have high penalties for breaking early
