Looking for the lowest rate and payment? An ARM loan could be perfect for you.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) offer a fixed interest rate period followed by adjustments in interest rate at pre-determined intervals thereafter. As such, they often come with some of the lowest interest rates available up front! While not right for every lending scenario, they're very popular with short-term buyers as they offer the least expensive mortgage payment possible.
Key Features of ARM Loans
Lower Interest Rates Than Fixed-Rate Loans
Because the fixed interest rate portion of the ARM loan is for a much shorter time than more traditional fixed-rate loans, lenders are able to offer lower rates during that period.
Ideal For Frequent Movers
If you relocate often for work, military service, or any other reason, ARM loans are a great way to make sure you pay the least amount of interest on your loan during the fixed-rate period of the loan.
Low Monthly Payments
ARM loans start off with very low interest rates during their fixed-rate period. Lower interest rates make for lower monthly mortgage payments.
What is an ARM Loan?
If you plan to move to a new home, an ARM home loan is a great option that you should consider. The period which your interest rate remains fixed is lower than more traditional loan programs. As such, the interest rate is often lower by comparison. Having the lowest rate available with an ARM allows you to potentially pay thousands less over a traditional fixed rate mortgage for the first few years of your loan.
