5/1 ARM at 3.75%* – In Defense of ARMs Part II

gate-architecture

In late August, I wrote a famous blog called “In Defense of ARMs” that was read by …. dozens of people. :)

OK, it wasn’t actually famous, and it was actually read by a few thousand people, but the message was clear:

ARMs (Adjustable Rate Mortgages) are getting much more competitive in this climbing rate environment.

And, they are a great way for borrowers to continue to lock in very low rates, even in the 3% range.

We now offer a 5/1 Jumbo ARM at no points at 3.75%*, for example, with a 20% down purchase.

5/1 rates are even lower with larger down payment percentages and larger loan amounts.

We offer a 7/1 Jumbo ARM at no points at 4.0%**, with a 20% down purchase.

And once again, larger down payment percentages and larger loan amounts allow us to offer even lower rates.

We encourage all borrowers to consider ARMs whenever their time-horizon is short, when they have ample liquidity, or when a lower payment is a necessity.
