Our Adjustable Rates May Start Out Low & Our Process is Quick & Painless
Unlike Fixed Rate Mortgages that have an interest rate that remains the same for the life of the loan, the interest rate on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) will change periodically. In a rising rate environment, borrowers who choose this strategy may benefit from a lower starting point than they would otherwise receive going with a fixed rate mortgage.
In the right situation, an ARM may be a good option to consider if you plan to own your home for a shorter period. Additionally, an ARM strategy may be beneficial in instances where the borrower is expecting an increase in their income over the near future.

The Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loan Process
Here’s how our home loan process works:
*All loans are subject to underwriting or investor approval. Other restrictions may apply. This is not an offer of credit or a commitment to lend. Guidelines subject to change. VA loan subject to veteran's full eligibility. USDA Program is for primary residence only and Income and Geographic limits apply.
Most ARMs include a fixed period for anywhere from 3 to 10 years. At the point the fixed term expires, the interest rate becomes variable, or adjustable, and the homeowner has a range of options available such as continuing to pay as the rate adjusts, refinancing into another ARM, opting for a fixed rate mortgage, or they can sell the home outright.
Most homeowners get into adjustable-rate mortgages for the lower initial payment, and then usually refinance the loan when the fixed period ends.
