I know it has to do with risk , but what about the risk that the bank can not collect anything ?

When the Fed lowers interest rates, why not lower the rate attached to 30 yr. mortgages?1Help me please2012-11-05 01:56:03
Instead of lowering rates linked to short-term loans to banks lend to each other , why not drop rate mortgages tied to 30 yr ? This would help the economy by allowing those with fixed rates to refinance and put more money into the economy and help those affected by the sub -prime ARMS .

Why are mortgage loan interest rates higher for fixed rate mortgages held for longer periods of time?0n.2012-10-07 11:16:35
Sorry if this sounds like a silly question , but I do not understand. For example , why are 30 years fixed mortgage rates the highest mortgage rates , vs say a 15, and why are 15 year fixed rate mortgage higher than adjustable rate mortgages ? It seems that lenders are taking a greater risk with an ARM versus a fixed rate mortgage and have to pay a higher rate (eg , comparing this situation with a new car loan versus a used car loan - the risk is higher in a used car loan ? ? ? ? MedlinePlus I can understand a fixed rate loan of 30 than 15 - a higher risk of default by the borrower , but still do not get the ARM be so low .
