Why Consider an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Loan?
With interest rates on the rise again, an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) loan can allow you to lock in a lower rate now to avoid rate increases in the future. With a 5/1 ARM loan, you are locked in at a fixed rate for the first five years; after that, your rate can fluctuate 2% or less each year for the remainder of the loan term. At that time, you have the option to refinance.
To Illustrate This, Let’s Consider a Fixed-Rate Loan and a 5/1 ARM Loan on a $200,000 Mortgage:
The 30-year fixed-rate is 6% as of mid-June, while the 5-year ARM rate is 4%. The payment difference is $244 per month.** Over the five-year length of the ARM, that’s a difference of $14,640 that could’ve been used to pay down the mortgage with the ARM compared to the 30-year fixed, or allocated to a savings account or other debt to give you a better overall financial picture.
Current 5/1 ARM Loan Rates Are 3.50%/5.124% APR
