Adjustable-Rate Mortgage

Improve your cash flow when you first move in with a lower initial interest rate and payment.


Get flexibility and up-front savings with an Adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM)

An adjustable-rate mortgage provides a lower initial interest rate and payments than a fixed rate loan – and improves your cash flow when you first move in. Patelco offers 5, 7, or 10-year terms for an ARM. After that, your payments can increase or decrease with interest rate changes, based on the terms of your individual loan. The interest rate will cap during the adjustments and life of your loan. Depending on your situation, an ARM may be a good financial decision and can potentially save you money. It’s especially good for people who know they want to move in the near future or will pay off their mortgage loan in several years.

ARM loans are different from fixed-rate mortgage loans, which keep the same interest rate for the life of the loan.

Frequently Asked Questions

    An ARM provides a lower rate and payment in the early years of the loan – which helps improve your cash flow when you first move in. Patelco offers a fixed rate for the initial terms of 5,7, and 10 years. The money you save with a lower interest rate can be put in a higher yield savings or investment account. In addition, an ARM offers a good, less expensive option for home buyers who plan on relocating after a few years. Lastly, in a lower rate environment, borrowers can take advantage of falling rates without refinancing after their initial fixed rate term. They won’t have to worry about additional closing costs and fees.
    The ARM offers a fixed rate for an initial period of 5, 7, or 10 years. After that initial fixed period, the interest rate adjusts. And while we put caps during the adjustments and the life of the loan, if the interest rate increases (for example in a higher rate environment), you may have higher payments.
    The higher payments may make it difficult on your budget and make planning challenging. Even if you carefully plan, it might make refinancing or selling your home difficult.
    ARMs are more complex than fixed-rate mortgage loans. We encourage you to speak with our expert Home Loan Consultants to discuss your options and find the right loan for you.
    Your mortgage loan’s interest rate is affected by a variety of things, including your credit score, down payment, and the amount of your mortgage loan, among other factors. We encourage you to use our mortgage loan calculator to see your options or speak to a Home Loan Consultant for a more accurate quote.
    The difference between a fixed rate and an adjustable-rate mortgage is that, for an adjustable-rate mortgage, the interest rate may go up or down. With a fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate is set when you take out the loan and will not change over the loan term.
    It’s a common misconception that you need a 20% down payment to buy a home. We offer several programs designed to help make homeownership more affordable.
    Here’s an overview of the most common options and their benefits:
