Fixed-Rate MortgagesA fixed-rate mortgage locks in your interest rate for the life of the loan. Your base monthly mortgage payment (principal and interest) will always stay the same if you have a fixed rate mortgage (although your taxes and insurance may change).
Adjustable-Rate MortgagesWith an adjustable-rate mortgage, you have a fixed rate for an initial time period (usually the first 5, 7 or 10 years). After that, your interest rate will reset based on the applicable index and margin. Most ARMs have caps that limit how high the interest rate can increase at each change date and over the life of the loan. Make sure you will be able to afford your payment if your interest rate reaches those caps.
