Adjustable Rate Mortgage
Low rates and an opportunity for savings today
- Do you want to significantly reduce the cost of your mortgage?
- Do you plan to move or refinance in the next 5, 7 or 10 years?
- Do you want the lowest rate available?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, an ARM might be right for you! With our Adjustable Rate Mortgage, you’ll get the lowest rates we offer, saving you thousands over a traditional Fixed Rate Mortgage, during the initial fixed rate period.
If you anticipate a significant increase in your income or property value in the next several years, plan on staying in your home short-term, or would like to significantly lower your payment, an ARM might be right for you. As the name implies, Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) have interest rates that change at a pre-determined frequency. Federally insured FHA ARMs are also available!
Why get an adjustable rate mortgage?
- Save thousands in payments vs. a fixed rate loan during the initial period
- Use the savings to pay down other debt or for whatever you like!
- Great option if you intend to refinance or sell your home in an expected time frame
- Put as little as 5% down (FHA 3%), or refinance up to 95% of your home's value
'Hybrid ARMs' are very popular, featuring an initial fixed-rate portion, which then changes to an adjustable rate for the remainder of the loan. They are typically represented as a 3/1, 5/1, 7/1, or 10/1. The first number indicates the time (in years) that the initial rate is fixed. The second number indicates how often the rate can adjust after the initial change.
Interest rate caps
What happens after the fixed-rate period ends? Once your loan enters its adjustable-rate period, interest rate caps are put in place. They identify the maximum amount your rate can increase, both at the end of each adjustment period, and over the life of the loan as a whole.
