Conservative borrowers who prefer fixed rates almost always choose a five-year term. In today's environment, I think there's a much better deal to be had, even if no one is talking about it. In today's post, I make my case.
If we really are at the bottom of the current interest-rate cycle then borrowers need to start thinking differently about how they finance their mortgage debt. Locking in a good rate for as long as possible is well worth considering, and to that end, I offer a contrarian's view of the ten-year fixed-rated mortgage.
