What is 30-year fixed?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "30-year fixed."

A 30-year fixed mortgage gives you three decades to pay off your house, and there won't be any surprises during that term. The interest rate won't change; it will be the same on the last day as it was on the first day. That's different from an adjustable-rate mortgage, with a rate that can change.
 
A 30-year fixed mortgage is a long-term home loan with a reliable interest rate.
