ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage)

    An adjustable rate mortgage is also known as a “variable-rate mortgage” or a “floating-rate mortgage”. It is a type of mortgage in which the interest rate paid on the outstanding balance varies according to a specific benchmark. The initial interest rate is normally fixed for a period of time after which it is reset periodically, often every month. The interest rate paid by the borrower will be based on a benchmark plus an additional spread, called an ARM margin.

    Both 2/28 and 3/27 mortgages are examples of ARMs. A 2/28 mortgage’s initial interest rate is fixed for a period of two years and then resets to a floating rate for the remaining 28 years of the mortgage. A 3/27 mortgage is typically the same as a 2/28 mortgage, except that the interest rate is fixed for three years and then floats for the remaining 27 years of the mortgage.


    I’ve been part of Amanda Howard Real Estate for 8 years now and still love to come to work everyday. Amanda and Travis has created a great place to work, learn and grow. They continue to seek and search for bigger and better ways to grow the company as well as each of us individually. I don’t know of any other company that will invest the amount of time and money in their people like they do!
