What are the advantages and disadvantages of 30-year fixed mortgages?

The pros of a 30-year fixed mortgage: it’s a predictable monthly payment; it’s a hedge against inflation (the rate is not tied to the index, so it doesn’t go up or down); it’s relatively simple and maintenance-free (you don’t need to worry about rate fluctuation); it provides a tax deduction from the interest you pay on your mortgage; and if rates drop significantly, you can refinance.

The cons of a 30-year fixed mortgage: rates and payments are usually higher than 15-year fixed mortgages and adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs), and if the owner decides to sell the home in less than five years, they could end up paying more interest vs. an ARM.
