The low payments of a traditional adjustable-rate mortgage combine with low adjustable caps for greater rate security.
The 5-Year Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) at Star One Credit Union—starting at 2.625% interest rate and a 2.936% APR1.
The 5/5 ARM combines lower initial payments with an extended period between rate and payment changes for greater rate security than traditional a ARM. This loan is best for homeowners that are willing to trade some risk of future interest rate increases for a lower start rate.
Your initial interest rate is guaranteed for the first five years. After that, the rate will adjust up or down every five years limited by a 2% period cap and 5% lifetime cap. The 5/5 ARM program is not available for investment properties.
