What is An Adjustable Rate Mortgage?


An adjustable-rate mortgage, or ARM, is a type of loan where the interest rate may change periodically based on the general market conditions. As a result, the amount you pay back each month can fluctuate. If you're looking to take out an adjustable-rate mortgage with Suncoast, here are some key features to know.


Initial Fixed Period


ARMs usually have a period with an initial fixed rate, where the interest rate you pay remains constant. Suncoast has different fixed-rate mortgage up-rate periods based on the ARM's length. Once the initial fixed rate expires, the interest rate will adjust based on the general market conditions.


Adjustment Period


The frequency at which an interest rate can change on an ARM mortgage is called an adjustment period. Suncoast offers a range of adjustment periods, up to 10 years.


Interest Rate Caps


We protect our borrowers with interest caps on our ARMs. These caps specify limits on how much the interest rate can change during a particular period.


Payment Caps


In addition to interest rate caps, some ARMs may have payment caps that limit the amount your monthly mortgage can increase during a set period. This helps you save money with your loan-to-value ratio.


Lifetime Cap


The lifetime cap sets the maximum interest rate that can change over the loan's lifetime. This provides an upper limit on potential interest rate increases and, again, saves you money!
