Initial Interest ARM Loans

Initial Interest ARMs allow your borrowers to make only interest payments for an initial interest-only period, freeing income to use toward other financial investments or providing additional tax advantages.

Most popular are 3/1, 5/1, 7/1 and 10/1 Constant Maturity Treasury (CMT)- or London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR)-indexed Initial Interest mortgage options. Each includes an interest-only period of 3, 5, 7 or 10 years respectively, then a fully amortizing adjustable-rate period for the remainder of the 30-year term. 3/1, 5/1 and 7/1 CMT and LIBOR-indexed Initial Interest ARMs with 10-year interest-only payment periods are also widely marketed.

Initial Interest ARM's Benefits

  • Minimize financing costs for the short-term for borrowers who do not plan to stay in the house past the interest-only period.
  • You can use monthly cash savings toward other financial investments.
  • You are allowed to make no principal payments during the interest-only period to reduce monthly payments.
