Fixed Rate Mortgage
With a fixed rate mortgage the rate and terms are determined and agreed upon in advance. The mortgage has a fixed interest rate for the entire term of the loan. The benefit of a fixed-rate mortgage is that the homeowner will not have to contend with varying principal and interest amounts that fluctuate with interest rate movements.
Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)
A type of mortgage in which the interest rate paid on the outstanding balance varies according to a specific benchmark. The initial interest rate is normally fixed for a period of time after which it is reset periodically. The interest rate paid by the borrower will be based on a benchmark plus an additional spread, called an ARM margin. An adjustable rate mortgage is also known as a “variable-rate mortgage.”
