Adjustable Rate Mortgage:

The interest rate on these loans is adjusted up or down periodically based on financial market indexes (such as Treasury bills). Monthly payments start lower than for fixed-rate mortgages. The initial rate is set for a specified period-1, 3, 5, 7, or 10 years-and then rates adjust at regular intervals. The adjustments generally are limited by both annual caps and a life-of--the-loan cap. Credit scores of 740 or better will get the best rates.
