Quick, Local Decisions
Atlantic offers the following Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs):
- 5/1 ARM
- 7/1 ARM
- 10/1 ARM
The first number denotes the length of the unchanging rate in years, and the second number is how often that rate is adjusted annually after the end of the first term. For example:
10 (years with the same rate) / 1 (rate adjustment per year for the rest of the loan term)
If you choose a 10/1 ARM with a 30-year term, your loan is constant for ten years. Then, for the remaining 20 years, your rate would change annually. These loans generally begin with a discounted offering rate at inception.
Is an ARM right for me?
Like most things in life – it depends!
Life changes like marriage, divorce, children, career advancement, etc. can change the path people assume they will take and may require a change in living arrangements such as a sale of the home, a refinance for improvements, moving into a larger home, or downsizing. If you anticipate any changes within the next five, seven, or ten years, choosing the right ARM can provide you with a lower rate until it's time to move again.
