Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) are ideal if you need a larger loan amount but want to keep your payments lower initially. An ARM may also be a good choice if in the years ahead, you expect your income to increase or plan to move or refinance when the rate adjusts.
- Monthly principal and interest payments remain the same for only a certain number of years and then adjusts.
- If you do not refinance prior to the end of the fixed rate, the rate can go up or down based on the market.
- The initial interest rate is usually lower than on a fixed rate mortgage loan.
- Local processing and underwriting for quick turnaround.
