Ask yourself these questions to determine the best loan program for you:

  • How important is payment certainty? If knowing that your payment will be the same every month is important, consider a fixed-rate mortgage.
  • How important is rapid equity buildup? If rapid equity buildup is a factor, consider a shorter amortization period, such as a 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage.
  • Other factors to consider include:
    • Ability to qualify at market rates for loan amount selected
    • Anticipated term of occupancy
    • Possibility of significant rate changes
    • Existing up-front costs

Fixed-Rate Mortgages

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

  • There is potential for the interest rate/ payment to fluctuate.

  • ARMs transfer to borrowers a portion of the risk associated with a changing economy.
