Adjustable Rate vs Fixed Rate

Adjustable rate mortgages (ARM) and fixed rate mortgages are the 2 primary types of mortgages:

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

The initial interest rate on an ARM is set below the market rate on a comparable fixed-rate loan, and then as time goes on, that rate rises. The biggest advantage of an ARM is that it is considerably cheaper than a fixed-rate mortgage.

ARMs are also attractive because their low initial payments often enable the borrower to qualify for a larger loan. A borrower who chooses an ARM may save several hundred dollars a month for up to seven years!

Fixed Rate Mortgage

A fixed-rate mortgage, or fixed mortgage, has an interest rate and monthly payments (loan premium and interest) that remain the same for the life of the loan.

Fixed-rate mortgages tend to have higher interest rates than adjustable-rate mortgages. It generally makes the most sense to choose a fixed-rate mortgage if you are buying a home that you plan to keep for many years. Our residential loan officers can help you decide which mortgage is right for your unique personal situation.
