About 15 Year Home Refinancing Loans. In low interest rate environments consumers typically prefer the certainty of fixed-rate loans over adjustable-rates. In high or rising interest rate environments consumers may see a larger relative discount in ARM loans which can help shift their preference across.
Adjustable rate mortgages have interest rates which are subject to increase after consummation. Estimated future payments shown are based on current index plus margin (CMT plus 2.25%). Actual payments will reflect then-applicable index/margin at each re-pricing interval, which may be higher than the estimates shown above.
