5-Year Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) 
Rates as Low as 6.375% RATE* / 7.622% APR*

With mortgage rates on the rise, alternative loan options are becoming more popular. While an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) may not be for all borrowers or scenarios, it could be an option to keep the interest portion of a mortgage payment more affordable in the near term. 


  • Saves interest compared to a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage during the initial 5-year term
  • Can be paid off or refinanced prior to the first adjustment without penalty
