Adjustable-Rate Mortgages Can Have Advantages for Homebuyers

An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) typically offers lower rates than a fixed-rate mortgage. Your rate is locked for the first 3, 5, 7, or 10 years and then could adjust up (or down) based on the index it’s tied to. It’s a great way to enjoy initial lower payments for borrowers who might plan on selling or refinancing before their initial fixed period ends.

Reasons to Choose an Arm Loan

  • Lower rates that may allow you to “buy more home”
  • You are going to be in the home for less than the initial fixed period of the ARM
  • You want a potentially lower initial monthly payment or interest rate
  • Possibility of lower payments if interest rates fall
  • Can be used on primary residences, second homes, and investment properties (1-4 units)

An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is a closed-end mortgage loan in which the interest rate is based on a financial index, allowing the interest rate to change if the index goes up or down. Consult your Guardian Mortgage loan originator for details.
