A 30-year fixed rate home loan is issued for the purpose of buying a home. Its interest rate and monthly payment are fixed and will not change or adjust for the duration of the entire 30 year period. Amortization is the process of paying a long-term loan off in which the interest amount decreases and principal being paid increases over time. To fully understand this, use the mortgage calculator form on this page to create an amortization schedule.
