Atlanta Mortgage Rates

By: Jimmy Sturo

Based on interest rates, Atlanta Mortgages can be divided into two types namely fixed rate and adjustable rate loan. In the case of a fixed rate loan, a monthly payment including the principal and the interest will never change for the duration f the loan.

These types of mortgages are available for different maturity periods ranging from biweekly to 30-year. The rate of interest also increases with the increase in the maturity period of the loan.

Adjustable rate mortgages offer an introductory rate of interest in the beginning for a fixed time period and later an adjusted rate based on the market index rate. The rates of interest of these mortgages fluctuate with market rates of interest on securities like the six-month Certificate of Deposit (CD), the one-year Treasury Security or others. Adjustable rate mortgages have a lifetime cap which protects the borrower from the monthly payment going too high too fast. The interest payments under adjustable rate mortgages are lower than those under fixed rate mortgages.

In Atlanta, mortgage rates differ throughout the city-and throughout Georgia. Generally rates range from 4 to 6 percent. For instance, the 30-year mortgage holds an interest rate of 5.3 percent in the case of Metro Atlanta's best home mortgages. A borrower can find plenty of useful information via online research directories.

A mortgage calculator gives you an idea as to how much a borrower has to pay every month for a home loan. Information required for using the mortgage calculator are the amount of the loan, the expected interest rate, which is an estimate based on current interest rates, and the period of loan.
