An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) may provide you with more flexibility as it typically has a lower payment than a traditional fixed rate mortgage due to the lower starting interest rate. This type of mortgage may be right for you if you are only expecting to be in the home for a short period of time, such as 3 to 10 years. An ARM offers a low starting payment for the initial period of years you select. After the initial period, for example, after 5 years for a 5-1 ARM, your interest rate and payment will adjust either lower or higher based on the market interest rates. After the initial term, the interest rate will adjust on an annual basis. There are periodic and lifetime interest rate ceiling caps to protect you from large fluctuations in the market. Talk with us today to see if this option is right for you.
