Are you in the market for a home and searching for a product that will allow you to enjoy a lower interest rate the first 10 years of your mortgage? SEFCU Mortgage Services offers a 10/6mos adjustable-rate mortgage that could be exactly what you're looking for.
What is an ARM?
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) offers a fixed rate for a specified term and then the rate becomes adjustable for the remainder of the mortgage. For a 10/6mos ARM the rate is fixed for the first 10 years providing you the security of knowing your mortgage payment will remain the same during that time. After the first 10 years your interest rate will adjust every 6 months (the "6" in the "10/6mos ARM") so your payment could fluctuate from year to year.
Benefits of a 10/6mos ARM
Quite possibly the biggest benefit is that you can have 10 years of a lower interest rate than what you can get from a 30-year fixed mortgage. If you plan to sell your house within 10 years, there is no reason to lock in an interest rate when you can take advantage of the lower payments for the first 10 years of the mortgage and then sell your home or refinance.
