Conventional Adjustable-Rate Loans

Live your dream with flexible home loans at great rates.

We’ll help you get a home you can afford.

Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) have an interest rate that changes periodically. That change depends on shifts in a financial index associated with the loan. These mortgages generally offer very competitive initial rates.

Perfect for you if:
  • You’re looking for a home at a great loan rate.
  • Your long-term plan may include selling your home.
  • You have flexibility in your yearly budget.

Loan Features

  • Your interest rate and monthly principal and interest (P&I) payments remain the same for an initial period of 5, 7, or 10 years, then adjust periodically.
  • Loans available for 30-year amortization schedules.
  • Interest rate caps set a limit on how high your interest rate can go.
  • You may be able to add extra features such as interest-only payments.

Loan Benefits

  • Typically ARMs have a lower initial interest rate than on a fixed-rate mortgage.
  • The interest rate cap limits the maximum amount your P&I payment may increase at each interest rate adjustment and over the life of the loan.
  • May provide flexibility if you expect future income growth or if you plan to move or refinance within a few years.

Considerations

  • Monthly principal and interest payments may increase when the interest rate adjusts.
  • Your monthly principal and interest payments may change every year after the initial fixed period is over.
  • Your interest rate and monthly principal and interest (P&I) payments remain the same for an initial period of 3, 5, or 7 years, then adjust periodically.

Terms

First Bank offers a wide range of ARM products. Our most popular ARM products include:

  • 5/1 ARMs: a fixed-rate for five years, an adjustment, and then change annually thereafter.
  • 7/1 ARMs: a fixed-rate for seven years, an adjustment, and then change annually thereafter.
  • 10/1 ARMs: a fixed-rate for ten years, an adjustment, and then change every ten years.

  • 10 year adjustable rate* of 4.625%, with an APR of 6.508%, the monthly payment would be $1,028.28.
