Flexible Loan Solutions
Get more for less out of your mortgage.
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) can provide borrowers with the flexibility to take advantage of lower interest rates in the market. With an ARM, the interest rate is initially fixed for a certain period. This can result in cost savings on monthly mortgage payments and potentially reduce the total interest paid over the life of the loan. Here are just a few benefits to buying your home with an ARM:
- Lower initial rates
- Short-term borrowing
- Cash flow management
- Potentially lower rates long term

Lower initial rates
ARMs typically have lower initial interest rates compared to fixed-rate mortgages. This can lead to lower monthly mortgage payments in the beginning, allowing borrowers to save money.
Lower initial monthly payments can provide borrowers with improved cash flow, allowing them to allocate funds towards other financial goals.
Flexible loan options
With an adjustable-rate mortgage, you can finance primary residences, secondary homes, and investments properties up $1.24 million dollars giving you control over all of your properties.
If you only plan to stay in your home for a short period, an ARM can be a smart choice. You can take advantage of the lower initial rate and sell or refinance before the adjustment period begins.
Potentially lower rates long-term
After the initial fixed term period, your interest rate will change based on the market. This gives you the potential to save money if the rates decrease over the life of your loan.
Eligible property types
While manufactured homes and co-ops are not eligible, detached
1-unit single family residence, 2-4 unit properties, modular homes, FNMA eligible condos, and non-warrantable condos are eligible.

What is the adjustment period?
The adjustment period is the interval at which the interest rate on an ARM adjusts. It is typically stated as a combination of two numbers, such as "5/1" or "7/1". The first number represents the fixed-rate period in years, and the second number represents how often the rate adjusts after the fixed-rate period ends.
How is the interest rate determined after the fixed-rate period?
After the fixed-rate period ends, the interest rate on an ARM adjusts based on an index, such as the U.S. Treasury note.
Can I switch from an ARM to a fixed-rate mortgage?
Yes, you have the option to refinance your ARM into a fixed-rate mortgage. This can help you secure a stable interest rate and monthly payment.
What happens if I sell my home before the end of the fixed-rate period?
If you sell your home before the end of the initial fixed-rate period, the new homeowner will assume the ARM.
