Benefit of an Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Adjustable Rate Mortgages have a few main benefits.

Lower Interest Rate

The initial interest rate on these adjustable products is often lower than their fixed-rate counterparts. The initial rate is often fixed for a period of time before it starts adjusting—typically five, seven, or 10 years. It will then adjust on a fixed schedule outlined when the loan is first obtained—typically every six to 12 months.

Flexibility

Adjustable Rate Mortgages may benefit those who are looking for a lower monthly payment at first, and expect to afford a larger payment as their income increases or their circumstances change. It also offers a lower monthly payment for those planning on selling before the interest rate begins to adjust.
