What Is An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)?
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is a home loan with a variable interest rate. Usually, the initial borrowing costs of an ARM are fixed at a lower introductory rate for a period of time. After that, the interest rate applied on the outstanding balance resets periodically and may affect your monthly payments which can increase or decrease, depending on the state of the economy and general cost of borrowing.
Is An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Right For You?
An ARM loan can be a smart financial choice if you are planning to keep the loan for a limited period of time and will be able to handle any rate increases in the meantime. For example, if you are buying your first home and plan to move again in a few years, or if you want to take advantage of the low introductory rate and then plan to refinance after the introductory period ends.
Why Get Pre-Qualified?
Getting pre-qualified for a mortgage loan is an important first step in your journey to home ownership. In fact, many real estate agents will ask you for a pre-qualification letter before they will take you out to look at homes. Being pre-qualified can also improve your chances of having an offer accepted by sellers.
