Adjustable Rate For A Chase Bank Mortgage
The Chase Bank ARM or Adjustable Rate Mortgage is advantageous for having lower early payments than fixed mortgages, and the ability to take advantage of lower rates in the future. ARMs are ideal for borrowers anticipating moving in a fixed payment period or with shorter term ownership plans. The ARMS work as follows: the interest rate is fixed for 5, 7 or 10 years (based on the chosen ARM product), and becomes variable for the remaining loan term, adjusting every year thereafter, based on the movement of the index. For example, a 5/1 ARM would have a fixed interest rate for the first five years and then convert to an adjustable rate, with annual adjustments for the remaining term of the loan.

The DreaMaker advantages allow for credit flexibility, even if you don’t have perfect credit; closing cost assistance may also be available.
