Adjustable Rate Mortgages

Lower initial rates can let you afford a larger home


Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) typically have a lower initial interest rate than fixed-rate loans. Payments are fixed for 5, 7, or 10 years; after which the rate and payment can increase or decrease annually or in the case of the 5/5 loan, once every five years. Adjustable rate loans are a good choice for home buyers trying to afford a bigger home, or who expect to sell the home before the end of the fixed-rate term, anticipate an increase in income, or expect rates to fall.
