How do I choose between a 15-year term and a 30-year term fixed-rate mortgage?

The shorter the loan term, the less you will pay in interest over the long run, but the larger the monthly payment will be. Keep in mind that even with a Greater Alliance 30-year Fixed-Rate Mortgage Loan, there are no penalties for paying ahead of your payment schedule, so choosing a 30-year loan but making larger-than-scheduled payments could be a good compromise option.
