Adjustable Rate Mortgages (conforming loan amounts)
Coastal Heritage Bank offers conforming adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) with loan amounts up to $500,000. ARMs are loans with interest rates that change periodically. ARMs generally have a lower initial interest rate than fixed-rate loans. The initial interest rate on an ARM is fixed for a specific period after which it might adjust annually, every three years or every five years depending on the ARM product you apply for. During the term of your ARM loan your interest rate and monthly payment may increase or decrease periodically. Our ARM interest rate changes are tied to changes in an index rate (the U.S. Treasury Securities index). The current indices are published every week in the Wall Street Journal. The index is added to a pre-disclosed amount (the Margin) to arrive at the interest rate adjustment. Any changes to the interest rate include a rate cap that limits the amount the interest rate can increase or decrease at each adjustment (currently 2%) and over the life of the loan (currently 4%). We offer rates for both conforming adjustable-rate mortgages and jumbo adjustable-rate mortgages
. Please see each ARM product disclosure
for full details. Owner-occupied housing only.
With a lower initial interest rate an ARM can be easier on your budget than a fixed-rate mortgage for the same loan amount; and could also be less expensive over a long period than a fixed-rate mortgage if interest rates remain the same or go lower. However, you must weigh the risk that an increase in interest rates would lead to higher monthly payments in the future. It’s a trade-off—you get a lower initial rate with an ARM in exchange for assuming more risk over the long run. For some people in certain situations, an ARM is a good mortgage choice, especially if your income is likely to increase enough over time to cover any possible rate increase; or if you plan to make additional payments or pay the loan off early; or if you plan on selling the home soon, rising interest rates may not pose the problem they do if you plan to own the home for a long time.
