Adjustable rate home mortgage


When shopping for an adjustable rate home mortgage, a borrower should continue asking questions until he or she fully understands the mortgage process and the particulars which apply to one's own loan. Often, buyers are intimidated by their lack of knowledge about this complex process. Unfortunately, zealous salespeople can sometimes steer customers into accepting loans which they do not understand. Worse, these financial agreements may not represent what is best for the buyer's situation. However, with a bit of research before signing, a buyer can approach lenders with confidence and emerge with the best of adjustable rate home loans.Attitude is important when beginning the mortgage process. Remember, lending institutions need business every bit as much as the borrower needs a loan, so do not be apologetic about questioning the terms of a mortgage, as though one was needlessly taking up the lender's time or questioning the lender's integrity by requesting more information. If lenders are unwilling or unable to provide such information, perhaps it is time to look elsewhere. Deciding upon a mortgage is probably one of the most important financial decisions one is going to make. So go ahead and ask questions. A buyer has the right to know.

As to the complexity of the process of shopping for an adjustable rate home mortgage, it is true that there are many areas which need to be addressed. Before approaching a lender, it would be wise to be familiar with the terms involved in selecting a loan. At first this may seem like an insurmountable mountain of information. Yet it is necessary so that one can approach a lender with confidence. Also, things are not as horribly difficult as one may fear. Although there are a multitude of configurations in adjustable rate home loans, they usually deal with a limited number of key concepts. Once these are understood, the whole process becomes a lot easier to comprehend. As further encouragement, consider this passage from Proverbs 25:2 -- It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

    My home loan goes into an adjustable rate in June of next year. I am wondering what to expect. I currently have a so-so rate with interest rates dropping or staying the same, what will my adjustable rate do if the market stays like it is now?

    • Your monthly payment goes up next June, starting January of 2008 I would start looking for a fixed rate. You should have (or establishing) an excellent payment history. Don t be late and don t pay less.
