Lowering Your Payments

Perhaps you currently have a higher rate fixed rate mortgage, or maybe you have an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — where the interest rate can vary. Even when rates come up later, unlike with your ARM, when you close a mortgage with a fixed rate, you set that low rate for the life of your mortgage. If you are not expecting to sell your home in the near future (about five years), a fixed rate mortgage loan can particularly be a good option. But if you do expect to sell your home more quickly, you will need to consider an ARM with a low initial rate to get lower payments.
