Mortgage Loans

Fixed Rate Mortgages

The major advantage of a fixed rate mortgage is that it presents predictable housing costs for the life of the loan. Most often fixed rate mortgages are available in 15, 20 and 30 year terms.

In spite of many options in a fixed rate mortgage, the 30 year fixed rate may still be the best one for you.  It offers the lowest monthly payment of fixed rate loans while providing a never changing monthly principal and interest payment schedule.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages

Adjustable rate mortgages (ARM) came about during a time of high interest rates that kept many people out of the housing market.  ARMs offer lower "initial rates" by sharing future risk of higher rates between the borrower and the Lender.

ARMs can be a excellent choice of financing under certain conditions, such as rising income expectations, high interest rates and short-term ownership.  Because payments and interest rates increase, either steadily or irregularly, home buyers considering this kind of mortgage needs to have the income to keep up with all possible rate and/or payment changes.

Some ARMs have fixed rate conversions options. this option allows the borrower to make their variable rate loan become a fixed rate load.  there is usually a fee required for the conversion.  the conversion rate may be higher than the prevailing ARM rate to compensate the Lender for the risk it takes in regards to market rates going up.

ARM Interest Rates:  Initial ARM Rates will usually be lower than fixed rate loans (usually one to three percentage points lower) and will vary depending on the length of the first adjustment period.  Lower initial interest rates also make ARMs somewhat easier to qualify for.  The future interest rates are tied to certain economic indices's that dictate in part what the monthly payment will be.

Adjustable Interval:  the time between changes in the interest rate and/or monthly payment; changes typically one, three or five years, depending on what program is selected.

Index:  Economic indicator in which the Lender established their base rate before the margin is added.  The most popular index is based on the rate of return on a one, three or five year Treasury Bill.

Margin:  The additional amount the lender adds to the index calculates the new interest rate on an ARM.  the margin is usually 2.5% to 3.0%.
