Is an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Right for You?

Are you in the market for a new home but worried about rising interest rates on mortgages?

An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) can help.

An ARM gives you a fixed interest rate for a predetermined number of years, followed by a variable rate with periodic adjustments after the fixed-rate period is over.

The interest rate during the fixed-rate period could be lower than the rate you’ll find on a fixed-rate mortgage with a 30-year term, which is especially helpful in the current rising rate environment.

Avadian offers 5/1, 7/1, and 10/1 ARMs, meaning the fixed-rate period is either five, seven, or 10 years, followed by adjustments to the variable rate based on the SOFOR index every year after that.

And because the average tenure of homeownership in the United States is around eight years, many homebuyers will sell their home before they even reach the adjustable-rate portion of their mortgage. Of course, you can always refinance if you decide to stay in the home and rates are better at the end of your fixed-rate period.
