Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARM)

These ARMs can help you get your foot in the door.

Yes, we really do refer to them as ARMs. But behind the odd name is a neat idea. With an adjustable-rate mortgage, you pay a lower rate for the first few years, which can make that house you really want more affordable. After that, the rate gets adjusted yearly. ARMs are a good bet if you think overall interest rates might drop, your family's income might rise, or if you might move again in a few years.

  • Choice of loans that offer lower rates for 3*, 5*, 7* or 10* years before adjusting every year
  • Our 5/5** ARM features a fixed rate for five years and then adjusts every five years
  • In most cases, the full loan is repaid over a 30-year period
  • There's a limit on how much the rate can increase per year over the life of the loan
  • Available for purchase or refinance
  • Interest payments may be tax deductible. Consult with your tax advisor.
  • Intangible tax fee waived for Power Financial Credit Union members

For a limited time, fees will be waived up to 2% of the amount financed on our adjustable-rate mortgages. That includes, application, appraisal and recording fees, title services and more. For a complete list, and eligibility requirements, talk to a Power Financial Credit Union mortgage specialist.
