Adjustable Rate Mortgages

Offering a lower interest rate and payments.

With our great Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM), your initial interest rate is set for 5, 7, 10, or 15 years. After that time your rate could increase or decrease. ARM loans usually offer a lower beginning rate compared to a traditional fixed rate mortgage.

Consider an adjustable rate mortgage if:

  • You plan to be in your home less than 10 years
  • You think rates will remain steady or decline during the initial term of the loan
  • You desire a lower monthly payment and are comfortable with a variable rate

Things to know:

When you see an ARM described as 5/1, 7/1, 10/1, or 15/1, here is what the numbers are saying:

  • The first figure refers to the initial number of years your interest rate will stay the same, or is locked.
  • The second figure is the adjustment period. This shows how often the rate can change (up or down) annually, after the initial period has ended.
