Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
Features a variable interest rate, which is periodically adjusted, based on the change in a financial index such as the One Year Libor or Five Year Treasury, 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 5/1, 5/5, 7/1, 10/1, and 15/1 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 5/5 ARM conforming loan, the initial rate is fixed for the first five years. At month 61, interest rate can increase to a maximum of 2% above the initial rate according to the index plus the margin. Thereafter, your interest rate will be adjusted every five years (rather than the normal one year), capped at 2% above the previous rate until you've reached the lifetime cap of 5% above the initial interest rate.
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.
