15, 20, 30 Year Fixed Loan
30 Year Fixed
A 30 year fixed conventional loan is a loan that has the same mortgage payments for 360 months.
Conventional loans typically are harder to qualify for than FHA loans and require a slightly higher down payment. However, in some cases rates can be lower and have lower closing costs. Also, monthly mortgage insurance is usually less or can be nothing with 20% down payment.
20 Year Fixed
This type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 240 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid slightly faster than the 30 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the 30 year fixed rate loan. Some Lenders allow for a lessor rate.
15 Year Fixed
This type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 180 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid faster than either the 30 year fixed rate loan or the 20 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the other two loans. Generally, the longer a lender agrees to keep the interest rate "fixed", the greater the risk to the lender, therefore, in most instances, interest rates on 15 year fixed rate loans are slightly lower than on 20 or 30 year fixed rate loans.

Our Happy Clients
"Chris was absolutely fantastic to work with. He closed on my mortgage efficiently and for exactly what he quoted me for. He answered my phone calls and emails immediately and got me a fantastic deal! I would totally recommend him to anyone looking to get a mortgage, you can't go wrong!"
"I had a terrific experience with Queen City - it couldn't have been better! Chris answered all of my questions, and was always available over the phone - even once in the early evening and another on Saturday. He had a great attitude also, not pushy like others I contacted. I used Queen City for a refi, and was surprised by how easy the whole process was. I would definitely recommend this lender to friends and family."
"I was ready to lock in with another lender but saw on Zillow that Chris could get me a much better rate. He was able to begin my application and get the 30 day lock that same day. The other broker didn't believe that the rate was real, or that the other bank would be able to complete the application process in 30 days, but Chris came through. We closed on time and the rate and fees were as promised. Chris was always available to talk and was a huge help throughout the process; I don't see why anyone would go anywhere else with a higher rate."
