  • 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.

  • After the initial interest-only period, your monthly payments will rise.
