Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Home Loans Plus offers a wide variety of home loans for every borrower.

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)
What goes up, must come down. And that's basically the principal of ARMs. The interest rate you pay is adjusted from time to time to keep it in line with changing market rates. This means when interest rates go up, your monthly home loan payments may go up. And, when interest rates go down, your monthly home loan payments may go down.

ARMs are great because they offer start rates that are lower than the interest rates of fixed rate home loans. This typically enables you to begin with lower monthly payments and qualify for a larger loan. If you're worried by the thought of your payment going up soon, or if you know exactly when you'll be ready to move to a new home, you might want to look into an ARM that protects you against the possibility of rapid interest rate increases for a set number of years.

Fixed period ARM starts with a lower rate than standard fixed rate loans. Your rate then stays the same for the first 3, 5, 7 or 10 years, depending on the fixed period ARM you choose. At the end of that period, your interest rate adjusts every year like a regular ARM according to a financial index (that's why some lenders call them 3/1, 5/1, 7/1 and 10/1 ARMs.
