Mortgage Rates Today Are On The Rise Again | January 12, 2022 | Personal finance

  • The latest rate on a 7/1 ARM is 3.803%. ??
  • The latest rate on a 10/1 ARM is 4.043%. ??

A variable rate mortgage could be a good option for borrowers who plan to sell their home or refinance on a relatively short notice. ARMs will start with a low, fixed interest rate which will eventually begin to adjust at regular intervals. For example, the rate on a 5/1 ARM will be fixed for five years and then change every year. The potential downside is that once the interest rate becomes adjustable, it can go up dramatically, thus increasing the monthly payments.
