Mortgage types break down even further
There are two different types of rates that mortgage loans are divided into. These types are based on the rates used during the payment terms.
A fixed-rate mortgage is a mortgage where the rate on the loan repayments do not change, and by extension, the loan payment each month does not change. The terms of the mortgage does not create any scaling or alterations of repayments.
An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) have an interest rate that will adjust from time to time. Typically, the rate on an ARM will change year to year.
There is also an extension of the ARM, which merges the two. A hybrid ARM mortgage (a version of an ARM), will start off as a fixed payment, and then start adjusting.
