Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

Loans with a variable rate after an initial fixed period

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

Significant short-term benefits.

The loan experts at Advantage Mortgage will help you understand your ARM options and help you decide if this type of loan is the right fit.

The ARM Advantage

With an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM), the interest rate stays the same for an initial fixed period of time and then adjusts based on market conditions. An ARM usually has a lower interest rate than a standard Fixed-Rate Mortgage for the initial fixed period. However, at the end of the initial fixed-rate period, the interest rate becomes variable and may move up or down depending on the direction of a mortgage index it is associated with.
