I thought mortgages had to be 30 years long, but I’ve heard of 10-year and 15-year mortgages. What are the advantages and disadvantages of shorter timeframes?

Two advantages. The first being you pay off your house faster, the second is that shorter term loans generally have lower interest rates than 30 year mortgages.
