Fixed Rate or Variable – Which is Best ?

The most important thing to remember is with a fixed rate, you have the safety of knowing exactly what your mortgage repayments will be for a certain period of time. You will not be affected by sudden increases )or decreases.  With interest rates at their lowest for many years – it is likely that variable rates will increase during the next 5 to 10 years.

Over the past several years it was usually the case that variable mortgage rates were often lower than fixed rates –  but right now some of the fixed rate deals are at their cheapest ever and some are lower than variable rates.
