An adjustable rate mortgage has an interest rate that changes with a predetermined index. This means that the interest rate will most likely change over the life of the loan, and that monthly payments will not remain the same from one period to the next. These periods between rate adjustments can be as long as five years or as short as one year. The disadvantage with an adjustable rate is obvious: you can not predict how the index with fluctuate and rates could rise, but adjustable rate loans come along with a rate cap to keep your rate from going too high. Also, adjustable rates usually come with an low introductory rate, and if rates were to drop, someone with an adjustable rate could end up paying less than someone with a fixed rate. An adjustable rate is also good if you plan on moving five to seven years after buying the house.
