What is an ARM?

The term adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), also known as a variable rate mortgage, refers to a home loan that begins with a low starting interest rate and then fluctuates periodically after the initial introductory term ends. After the intro period, the rate can increase or decrease based on the index and margin agreed to in the loan terms.

 

 

How do ARMs work?

An ARM product is named by two numbers; the first represents the length of time the starting interest rate stays the same, while the second number signifies how often the rate may fluctuate thereafter (adjustment period). For example, during the first five years in a 5/1 ARM the starting interest rate for the first 5 years of the loan does not change. After that, the rate will adjust every 12 months thereafter for the remaining term of the loan.

Is an ARM for me?

An ARM could be the right option if you're looking for the lowest possible rate for the time-being. The inital interest rate offered is typically lower than rates offered with fixed-rate mortgages. If you are looking for a starter home, or plan to move or refinance within the introductory term of the loan, an ARM could make sense for you.

 

 

 

If an ARM isn’t quite right for you, we offer a variety of loan options with low to no down payment options. Contact one of our specialists to see how we can help you achieve your dreams of homeownership!
