Fixed Rate Vs. Adjustable Rate Mortgages

02-04-2022About MortgagesEddie Knoell

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage’s interest rate changes after the fixed period expires. Typically, ARMs are 30-years loans, meaning that you’ll pay back the money you borrowed over the span of 30 years. At the beginning of the loan, you’ll start with a lower rate than average mortgage interest rates. The low rate will stay the same for a period of time, commonly 5, 7, or 10 years. After the fixed-rate period ends, your interest rate will adjust up or down based on an index.
