Adjustable-rate Mortgage Loans

  • The initial interest rate is typically lower than a fixed-rate loan - which means a more affordable monthly payment at the beginning of your loan
  • You could pay less in interest if you only stay in the home for a short time - depending on market conditions, you might never have a rate increase on your loan
  • A lower initial payment might help you qualify for a larger mortgage loan
  • They’re available with low down payment options - which could help you get into the home of your dreams faster
  • And like every Summit mortgage, your loan will be serviced directly by Summit

Understanding ARM Loans

ARM loans are often described with a two-digit number (for example, 1-1, 3-1, 5-1 and 10-1).

Here’s what those numbers mean:

  • The first number = how many years the initial interest rate will be locked in.
  • The second number = how frequently the loan rate could be adjusted after that period.

So, for a 3-1 loan: The original interest rate would be fixed for the first three years and it could change once each year for the rest of the loan.
