Two options with various advantages:

  • Fixed Rate Mortgages utilize a fixed interest rate, helping to keep your principal and interest payments the same for the entire term.
  • Fixed Rate Mortgages work well for people who want certainty in their monthly budgeting and who plan to stay in their home for at least 10 years.
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgages, known as ARMs, provide a lower interest rate in the beginning of the term. The lower interest rate is usually locked in for one, three, or five years before it begins to fluctuate annually based on market conditions, for the rest of the term.
  • There are caps on how much the interest rate on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage can increase in a year or term. It's also possible for the interest rate to decrease based on market conditions.
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgages can help you save money on interest payments early in your term.
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgages can be a good fit for people who have budgeting flexibility, who want a lower initial rate, and/or who plan to sell their home in less than 10 years.
