Mortgage Products: The 15 Year ARM
As you begin to traverse the actual home appraisal, the loan amortization, your down payment, and all the dots that must be connected in order to make the dream a reality, you suddenly realize that you may not be able to afford a payment on the Fixed Rate Mortgage plan. What other options are available? Well, there’s the Adjustable Rate Mortgage that is a close first cousin to the Fixed Rate mortgage, just a little riskier. What products are available with the Adjustable Rate Mortgage? What advantages does the Adjustable Rate Mortgage option offer, and what are they drawbacks, if any? This article examines the advantages and disadvantages, if any, of the Adjustable Rate Mortgage and the 15 Year ARM option.
The Adjustable Rate Mortgage, or ARM, is a more affordable option for homeowners who have a fairly tight monthly budget, and who have a need for bigger house, lower payment. The typical ARM customer wishes to build equity in their home; however they need the lowest monthly payment possible, for a certain number of years. The homeowner this program most benefits is the individual who expects income increases to occur within a few short years, but also has an expanding family with a need for space. The 15 Year ARM is one of the more used ARM options, simply because of the attractive monthly payment, and the length of time the homeowner has to build more equity in an affordable payment.
An ARM works in this way: when you set up your mortgage on an ARM, the interest rate you have will only be set for a very short period of time, normally only 6,9, or 12 months. At the end of that period, the interest rate will be re-evaluated, and if the rates have increased based on the prime, your interest rate will also increase; once again, for a short, set period of time. The benefit derived from this type of loan, during today’s economy, is that the interest rates are at an all time low. That equates to big savings for current home buyers, and homeowners who refinance.
The 15 Year ARM allows the mortgage loan to operate as an adjustable rate mortgage for 15 years, automatically converting to a fixed rate loan after that 15 year period has expired, for another 5, 7, or 10 years.
The disadvantage to this type of loan occurs when interest rates begin to rise. As the rate rises for the lending institution, it also rises for you, the homeowner. The home mortgage product market can be very confusing, and quite frustrating if you don’t take the time to fully research and understand your mortgage options.Other Details
