That means that your first payment will be the exact same as your last payment. The main benefit of a fixed rate mortgage is the stability. No matter what the market conditions are, the rate will remain the same unlike in a adjustable rate mortgage where the rate fluctuates. What if the rate drops later and you want to get a lower rate, but have a fixed rate loan? You can always refinance your loan to a lower rate, so you don’t have to be worried about being stuck with a higher than average rate, if you are willing to put in the work.
