The difference between a fixed-rate and an adjustable-rate mortgage lies in the interest rate for the loan. For a fixed-rate mortgage, the interest rate is set when you take out the loan and will not change. The fixed interest rate allows borrowers a measure of predictability. With an adjustable-rate mortgage, the interest rate may increase or decrease. The borrower assumes the risk of interest rate increases in exchange for lower initial rates and lower initial mortgage payments.

Many factors determine the type of mortgage that is best for you, including your current financial situation and the length of time you intend to stay in your home. At Bethpage, we offer a wide selection of mortgage options, and we encourage you to speak with a Bethpage Mortgage Loan Officer, who will help you make the most appropriate decision.

For example, for our 10/1 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.
