Fixed Rate Loan

A loan with an interest rate that does not change over the life of the loan. For example, if one borrows money at a fixed interest rate of 10%, then 10% is amortized over the maturity of the loan and thus payments never change. A fixed interest rate differs from a variable interest rate, which may change, at least within certain parameters. Most home mortgages in the United States are fixed rate loans.
