What is an Interest Rate?

Interest rates are the cost of borrowing money. The amount charged for this loan is commonly referred to as the interest rate. Interest rates can vary based on several factors, including the amount borrowed and your credit history.

There are two main types of interest rates: fixed and variable. Fixed interest rates stay the same throughout the term of a loan, while variable interest rates may change at any time depending on economic conditions or other circumstances.

Fixed Interest Rates

A fixed interest rate is one that remains the same over the life of a loan. This type of interest rate is ideal for borrowers who want predictability and stability in their monthly payments. It can also be beneficial to those looking to take out a large loan or refinance an existing mortgage, as it reduces the risk of rising rates over time.

Variable Interest Rates

Unlike fixed interest rates, variable rates may change at any time based on economic conditions or other factors. While this can make them more volatile than fixed rates, variable interest rates are typically lower than those of fixed mortgages. They can be a good option for borrowers who expect to see their income increase over time and are willing to accept some risk in exchange for lower monthly payments.

Ultimately, the type of interest rate that is best for you will depend on a number of factors, including your financial situation and risk tolerance. You should carefully consider all of your options before making a decision about which type of interest rate is right for you.​

We provide debt resolution services. Our clients who make all monthly program payments save approximately 40 – 50% of their enrolled debt (average of 43%) upon successful program completion, before program fees. Fees are based on a percentage of your enrolled debt at the time of starting the program and range from 15%-25% of your enrolled debt. Programs range from 20-48 months. Clients must save at least 25% of each debt due to an enrolled creditor before a bona fide settlement offer will be made. On average, clients receive their first settlement within 4-7 months of enrollment and approximately every 3-6 months thereafter from when the prior debt was settled. Not all Clients complete the program. Estimates are based on prior results and may not match your results. We cannot guarantee that your debts will be resolved for a specific amount or percentage or within a specific timeframe. We do not assume your debts, make monthly payments to creditors or provide tax, bankruptcy, accounting, legal advice or credit repair services. Our program is not available in all states; fees may vary by state. Some programs may be offered through The Law Firm of Higbee & Associates d/b/a Advantage Law. The use of debt resolution services will likely adversely affect your credit. You may be subject to collections or lawsuits by creditors or collectors. Your outstanding debt may increase from the accrual of fees and interest. Any amount of debt forgiven by your creditors may be subject to income tax. Clients may withdraw from the program at any time without penalty and receive all funds from their dedicated account, other than funds earned by the company or fees paid to third-party service providers, as may be applicable. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrolling. Certain types of debts are not eligible for enrollment. Some creditors are not eligible for enrollment because they do not negotiate with debt relief companies. To determine the offers you may be eligible for, Americor conducts a “soft credit pull.” This credit pull does not impact your credit score, creditworthiness, or ability to obtain credit from other sources. The soft pull is not a tradeline entry, it does not report against your score and will only take a few minutes.
