  • You are uncomfortable with interest rates rising significantly over the next few years.
  • You are purchasing a home you plan to stay in for a long time.

Adjustable-Rate Loan

  • You want to lower your initial monthly payments.
  • You plan to sell or refinance your home within the initial fixed-rate period.
  • You expect your income to increase in the future.
  • You don’t anticipate interest rates to increase significantly in the future.

Note: Your interest rate and monthly payments may increase after the initial fixed-rate period ends.

Interest-Only Loan

  • You have plans to sell the property within a short period.
  • If you anticipate the ability to make a large principal reduction within the next few years of the loan, an interest-only loan may be a good option.
  • Interest-only loans7 may be a good fit for your needs if you have irregular income such as investments and commissions, whereas if you have steady income levels your needs may be better satisfied with principal and interest payment loans.
  • After the initial interest-only period, your monthly payments will rise.
