Fixed-Rate Refinance Loan

Take the guesswork out of your monthly rate.

A fixed-rate loan is a common refinance option for homeowners seeking to part ways with the unpredictability of an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM).

With a fixed-rate refinance loan, your interest rate stays the same throughout the life of the loan. The loan payment also doesn’t change.

If you plan to stay in your home for a long time, or you just like the comfort of knowing that your rate won’t change, a fixed-rate loan might be the way to refinance.

While there are potential advantages of refinancing a mortgage to a fixed-rate loan, keep in mind that refinancing isn't for everyone, as individual situations differ. 


  • Predictable. You know exactly how much interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan.
  • Peace of mind. The rate won’t change, and neither will your monthly payments.
  • Spend less over time. Refinancing into a lower interest rate fixed-rate loan reduces the amount of interest you pay over time.
  • Reducing the loan term also helps save on interest over the life of the loan. 


  • Fixed rates are typically higher than initial rates for adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs).
  • If rates drop below what you’re paying on your loan, you won’t be able to take advantage of the lower rate unless you refinance again.
  • If closing costs are high with a refinance, that will impact potential savings. 
  • Refinancing to a lower loan term could result in your monthly payments increasing because your time to pay off the loan is less.
