Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)s are loans whose interest rate can vary during the loan's term. These loans usually have a fixed interest rate for an initial period of time and then can adjust based on current market conditions. The initial rate on an ARM is lower than on a fixed rate mortgage which allows you to afford and hence purchase a more expensive home. Adjustable rate mortgages are usually amortized over a period of 30 years with the initial rate being fixed for anywhere from 1 month to 10 years. All ARM loans have a "margin" plus an "index." Margins on loans typically range from 1.75% to 3.5% depending on the index and the amount financed in relation to the property value. The index is the financial instrument that the ARM loan is tied to such as: 1-Year Treasury Security, LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate), Prime, 6-Month Certificate of Deposit (CD) and the 11th District Cost of Funds (COFI).
When the time comes for the ARM to adjust, the margin will be added to the index and typically rounded to the nearest 1/8 of one percent to arrive at the new interest rate. That rate will then be fixed for the next adjustment period. This adjustment can occur every year, but there are factors limiting how much the rates can adjust. These factors are called "caps". Suppose you had a "3/1 ARM" with an initial cap of 2%, a lifetime cap of 6%, and initial interest rate of 6.25%. The highest rate you could have in the fourth year would be 8.25%, and the highest rate you could have during the life of the loan would be 12.25%.

Frequently Asked Questions about New Jersey Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) by Cornerstone Mortgage Group Services
What is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)?
An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a type of home loan with an interest rate that changes periodically based on a specific financial index. This means your monthly principal and interest payments may increase or decrease over time.
What are the benefits of an ARM?
The benefits of an ARM include lower initial interest rates compared to fixed-rate mortgages, the potential for reduced monthly payments if interest rates decrease, and increased flexibility for borrowers who may not plan to stay in their home for an extended period.
Are there any downsides to Adjustable Rate Mortgages?
The main downside to Adjustable Rate Mortgages is the uncertainty regarding future interest rate changes. While interest rates may decrease, they may also increase, leading to higher monthly payments for the borrower.
How do I choose the right ARM for my needs?
Choosing the right ARM depends on your financial goals and circumstances. Consider factors such as how long you plan to stay in the home, your risk tolerance, and the current interest rate environment when making your decision.
What do the numbers in an ARM (e.g., 5/1 ARM) mean?
The numbers in an ARM represent the initial fixed-rate period and the adjustment interval. For example, a 5/1 ARM has a fixed interest rate for the first five years, and then the rate adjusts annually (every one year) thereafter.
