A powerful tool for homebuyers

Think rates will fall? Do you plan to stay in your home only a few years? Consider an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage. Because ARMs offer a lower initial interest rate, you can enjoy a more affordable payment and boost your monthly cash flow.

Overview

Why choose an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage?

10/1 Adjustable-Rate Mortgage rates as low as 6.625%/ 7.082%* APR1 for the first 10 years, and no more than 10.625% / 11.082% APR1 for the remainder of the loan term

As the name implies, an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) offers a lower fixed rate for a set time, and then adjusts after that. For home buyers who plan to move or refinance before the initial fixed rate is up, that can mean a big savings on interest.
