What's the difference between a fixed mortgage rate and a variable mortgage rate?
A fixed mortgage rate allows you to lock in to that rate for a set period of time (i.e. the mortgage term), while a variable mortgage rate changes based on the mortgage lender's prime rate.
This may increase or decrease during the life of the mortgage, and can fluctuate with market conditions. You may pay more or less on your mortgage payments month-to-month with a variable mortgage rate.
For a complete comparison of the two, read: What's Better? A Fixed Mortgage Rate or Variable Mortgage Rate.
