    A 30 year fixed refers to a mortgage.

    Fixed means your payment and interest rate are fixed for the life of the mortgage.

    30 years means how long the mortgage will last.

    30 years is the life of the loan…you will be making payments monthly for 30 years and then your home will be paid off.
    Fixed interest rate means…the interest rate you get at the time of loan signing will remain the same for as long as you have that mortgage. It will stay fixed.
    Really a good way to go especially if the rate is low, under 6.5%.
    Anytime along the 30 years, you can remortgage at a lower interest rate when interest rates go lower.

    A mortgage for a period of 30 years with a fixed (as opposed to variable) interest rate.
