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 just have one question…..”Do you know anyone in Huntsville, Alabama, that can sell a home within one week of listing it?” If so, use them. I used Amanda Howard, and my home had a contract on it within a week. Flawless performance and service.
