The Lowdown on Adjustable Rate Mortgage...
Our Adjustable Rates Are Low & Our Process is Quick & Painless
An ARM is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage. Unlike fixed-rate mortgages that have an interest rate that remains the same for the life of the loan, the interest rate on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage will change periodically. The interest rate on an ARM mortgage is tied to the current market rates, and there are caps that limit how much, how often, and by what amount the interest rate can change.
The initial interest rate of an ARM is lower than that of a fixed-rate mortgage, which can be a big advantage. About half of all consumers will not keep their mortgages for more than 3 and 1/2 years. The vast majority of people are in for less than 7 years. An ARM can be significantly cheaper than a fixed-rate loan. If you’re not going to keep the mortgage for 30 years, why would you pay at the 30-year rate? Consequently, an ARM may be a good option to consider if:
- You plan to own your home for only a few years
- You expect an increase in future earnings
- The prevailing interest rate for a fixed-rate mortgage is too high

Why an ARM?
Most homeowners get into adjustable-rate mortgages for the lower initial payment, and then usually refinance the loan when the fixed period ends. At that time, the interest rate becomes variable, or adjustable, and the homeowner would likely refinance into another ARM, something fixed, or sell the home outright.
