Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

Flexible Financing for Changing Financial Landscapes

Quick Summary

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs) offer an initial fixed-rate period followed by periodic adjustments, providing borrowers with lower initial payments and the potential for savings if interest rates remain stable or decrease. Evaluating your long-term plans, risk tolerance, and market conditions is essential in determining if an ARM suits your homeownership strategy.

What is an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)?

An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a type of home loan where the interest rate adjusts periodically based on a predetermined index. Unlike fixed-rate mortgages, ARMs have an initial fixed-rate period during which the interest rate remains constant, followed by scheduled adjustments at specified intervals. These adjustments can lead to changes in your monthly payments over time.

Is a Conventional Loan Right for me?

Determining if an ARM aligns with your financial strategy involves considering the following factors:

  1. Initial Fixed Period: The appeal of ARMs lies in their lower initial interest rates during the fixed-rate period. If you plan to sell or refinance your home before the adjustable phase begins, an ARM might offer you lower initial payments.
  2. Market Fluctuations: ARMs are subject to interest rate adjustments based on market conditions. If you’re comfortable with potential payment changes and believe interest rates will remain stable or decrease, an ARM could be a suitable choice.
  3. Risk Tolerance: Your comfort level with fluctuating monthly payments is crucial. Consider your risk tolerance and ability to manage payment increases in case interest rates rise.
  4. Long-Term Plans: Evaluate how long you plan to stay in your home. If you foresee a short-term ownership, an ARM’s initial lower rates might be advantageous.
