The 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage has long been the most popular among American homebuyers. But in recent years, an increasing number of people have opted for 15-year loans.

This calculator will help you figure the short-term and long-term costs associated with 15-year and 30-year fixed-rate mortgages.
