Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)

Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)

An ARM starts off with a fixed interest rate, typically for five or seven years, before adjusting periodically based on a corresponding mortgage market index. As a result, the interest rate on a ARM can increase or decrease after the initial fixed-rate period.
