An Adjustable Rate Mortgage often parlays into a lower mortgage rate than a fixed rate mortgage. With most ARM loans, your rate is fixed for a set period. Once the fixed period ends, your rate adjusts. An ARM mortgage may be right for you if plan on moving prior to when your fixed rate period ends.
