Adjusts every 5 years
Adjustable after year 7
Adjustable-rate loans (ARMs) give you the advantage of increased buying power if you only plan on staying in your house a few years. An ARM may allow you to qualify for a larger home loan amount and get more house for your money, plus you'll have lower payments during the first years of your loan.
ARMs may be the best choice for you if:
- You want to get more for your money
- You want to keep payments lower during the early years of your loan
- You plan to move within 10 years
- You plan to pay off your mortgage within 10 years
- You expect your income to increase significantly in the coming years
ARMs come in terms of 3/1, 5/5, 5/1 (standard and high-balance), 7/1, and 10/1.
