The Flexibility You Need

Bellwether's Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) are home loans that are not fixed for the entire term of the loan. In general, ARM interest rates for the initial loan period are usually lower than Fixed Rate Mortgages. Most ARM loans have an initial period where the rate is fixed, but the rate can change after that. These loans involve more risk than Fixed Rate Mortgages, but they can also save you money.
