What is an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage?

An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) from Bethpage is a mortgage that starts with a low fixed interest rate for 3, 5, 7, or 10 years, depending on the type of ARM you select. After the initial fixed period ends, the interest rate will then adjust at preset intervals based on the market index and terms of the loan selected.

The first number (7 years) refers to the number of years the initial rate will stay fixed.
The second number (1 year) refers to how frequently (in years) the interest rate will adjust after the fixed rate period ends.

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage might be right for you if:

You want a lower monthly payment now.

An ARM typically has a lower interest rate (than that of a Fixed-Rate Mortgage) for the first years of the loan.

With a Bethpage ARM, there is a maximum for each adjustment and for how much your interest rate can increase over the life of the loan. For example, for our 3/1 ARM, the interest rate for each adjustment cannot increase or decrease more than 2 percent after the fixed rate period. And, the interest rate will never increase or decrease more than 6 percent for the life of the loan. Caps may vary by program.
