What is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage?
Should You Consider It?

Adjustable Rate Mortgage
Adjustable Rate Mortgage can be introduced in a short essay. But the professional
should be consulted when deciding as to its value.
Buying a home can be an experience that rivals some of life’s biggest moments. It also
means making choices and decisions that determine financial and emotional wellbeing.
Making those decisions necessitates learning. It is a little of what it’s all about and
where to go when you need to learn more!
A mortgage becomes not only the tool that allows ownership. But a trap that may spring
if not treated with intelligence. It is wise to take small steps and be assured that there
are those who do know answers. These people are waiting to be consulted.
What is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage?
The Adjustable Rate Mortgage gets its name from a mortgage with the rate of interest
adjusted periodically. Its counterpart is the Fixed-Rate Mortgage which keeps the same
interest rate for the entire length of the loan. The interest rate is made up of two parts.
The index rate of averages in the financial world. The margin which is the extra that the
loan company adds. These two factors make up the interest rate on the mortgage, both
fixed and adjustable.

More Information About ARM
What happens with the ARM is that a lower interest is offered at the beginning of the
mortgage, and after several years, it is adjusted and the mortgage payment will go up to
cover the new interest. For example, the 3 referred to in a 3/1 ARM means that the low
beginning interest will go for 3 years. Then, a new interest will be determined. After this

3-year period, the rate will be adjusted one (1) time each year until the end of the
mortgage. This change will probably bring a higher payment each year. A 5/1 ARM is
one that is first adjusted on the fifth year and then once every year until the end.

Types of Adjustable Rate Mortgage
Another kind of ARM keeps the initial payment down by eliminating any principal
payment on the amount borrowed. There is sometimes a cap put on the amount of the
new payment or on the new interest, or on the amount due and, if this happens, the
payments due will be put back in the initial mortgage amount due. It is necessary that
an increased source of income be available to pay for an increased mortgage payment
through the years of this mortgage. Some ARMs may be transferred to Fixed Rate
Mortgages at specific times. There is a fee for this and for early payoff.

Who should take advantage of the ARM with its low numbers
at the beginning?
Since the interest rates are lower at the beginning, the homeowner who is planning on
only a short time with the mortgage will benefit the most. Someone who is looking for
additional cash at the beginning of the home ownership process but knows that he will
have a definite increase in cash flow to meet the need later will find the ARM helpful.
