Adjustable Rate Mortgages
An Adjustable Rate Mortgage features a low rate for a fixed period of time, from three to ten years. After that, your rate may fluctuate periodically, either every one or five years.
Works best for: Adjustable Rate Mortgages are perfect for buyers who want to buy more home at a lower rate. ARMs are also ideal for homebuyers who plan to refinance or resell their home within a few years.
A Fixed-Rate Mortgage will keep the same rate for the life of the loan. Homebuyers can choose terms up to 30 years, with a fixed monthly payment.
Works best for: Fixed-Rate Mortgages are ideal for homebuyers who want a fixed payment to allow for long-term budget planning goals. A new home buyer might choose a fixed rate if they have found a home they want to live in for the life of the loan. A homeowner might refinance to a fixed rate if they are seeking more stability in their future payments.
Investment Property Loans
An Investment Property Loan for non-owner occupied and multifamily homes offers more flexibility for real estate investors. Investment Property Loans are not limited to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac

FHA or VA loans are designed for borrowers with a lower income or credit score, or for those who are unable to make a larger down payment. However, government-backed loans have special requirements, including the purchase of mortgage insurance which can add to your overall cost.
