Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
Features a variable interest rate, which is periodically adjusted, based on the change in a financial index such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), plus a margin that is established at origination. Interest rate changes are limited or capped at each adjustment and for the life of the loan. ARMs may provide the security, flexibility and affordability prospective home-buyers desire. These loans are especially attractive to home-buyers who plan to trade up in future years. Generally, initial interest rates are lower than fixed rate mortgages.
USALLIANCE Financial currently offers 5 Year, 7 Year, and 10 Year adjustable rate mortgages for conforming and jumbo loan amounts. Each ARM product has their own Index, Margin and Caps. The initial interest rate is fixed for a certain period, for example: with a 5 year ARM loan, the initial rate is fixed for the first five years. At month 61, the interest rate can increase, or decrease, to a maximum of 2% above, or below, the initial rate according to the index plus the margin. Thereafter, the interest rate will be adjusted every 6 months, capped at 1% above, or below, the previous rate until it has reached the lifetime cap of 5% above, or below, the initial interest rate. However, the rate will never be lower than the margin.
These applications with more than $150,000 cash-out and an LTV over 70% will require Senior Management approval and may require an add-on to the rate.
This program offers the borrower lower closing costs at a higher interest. The APR is calculated the same as the other Conforming Mortgage Loans, only without the FNMA required Loan Level Proce Adjustment (LLPA) Fees, which are estimated at 0.5% of the loan amount.
