Americans looking to buy, sell or refinance a home are confronting a very different market from the one that existed just a few months ago. And it continues to change!

What does this mean for you and your current mortgage?

For Borrowers with Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

If your ARM is scheduled to adjust in the next 2-18 months, schedule an appointment with a mortgage professional right away. Whether your ARM is sub-prime, Alt-A, or even if you have a pre-payment penalty, don’t let a default or foreclosure situation sneak up on you. Did you know that your monthly payments can increase anywhere from 30% to 100% once your loan resets? At the very least, give yourself the peace of mind of knowing what your adjusted payment will be.
