The Rates Are Lower. Because ARMs are subject to rate adjustments later in the mortgage term, the initial interest rate is set lower than standard fixed-rates. This rate provides you with initial lower payments or increased purchasing power.
ARMs Have Changed. Our programs provide an initial fixed-rate from one to ten years before the rate adjusts. These options are best for those who want added payment stability and lower monthly expenses.
Life Styles Change. First-time home buyers no longer tend to stay in their "starter" home for 30 years and experienced homeowners often plan to payoff their mortgage long before the 30-year maturity date. Both of these types of members may benefit from choosing an ARM product with an initial fixed-rate period that corresponds with the amount of time their loan is expected to be outstanding.
