What is an ARM?
An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a loan which has a fixed rate for a designated period of time and then adjusts. For example, a 7/1 ARM is fixed for 7 years and then adjusts each year for the next 23 years for a 30 year loan. The initial rate will be lower than your traditional 30 year fixed but has increased risk long term.
What is APR?
This takes the Note Rate (your actual rate the mortgage payment is based off of) and adds the fees for points, appraisal, processing etc. The lower the APR, the lower the fees.
