What are the benefits of an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM)?
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) gives you access to extremely low-interest rates for the initial fixed period. ARMs are great for people who don’t plan to stay in their homes for a long time unless they’re open to refinancing their loans. If you’ll only want to keep your house for a few years, or you plan to refinance your loan, you should look into an ARM.
How is the interest rate on a mortgage determined?
Mortgage loan index rates vary from day to day based on the market rate. From there, we determine what rate you qualify for by checking such things as your credit score, payment history, and employment history. The better your finances, the lower the rate you are offered.
