In a speech to a credit union group, Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan questioned whether fixed-rate mortgages were the most cost-effective means of financing a home purchase.  He said "American homeowners clearly like the certainty of fixed mortgage payments" but pay several thousands of dollars a year for the benefits.

Greenspan said homeowners "might have saved tens of thousands of dollars had they held adjustable-rate mortgages rather than fixed-rate mortgages during the past decade"

Greenspan noted that if homeowners are "willing to manage their own interest-rate risks, the traditional fixed-rate mortgage may be an expensive method of financing a home." Feb. 24, 2004


What is the most important feature of an (ARM) adjustable rate mortgage? The monthly index which determines it's rate. A steady and stable index protects the borrower from rapid increases. Volatile indexes are risky and do not protect the borrower. An example of a  "volatile"  index would be the 12-month treasury, 6-month libor, and the 6-month CD. The Option Index (MTA) is more stable and steady.

The annual cap is a 7 1/2% "payment" cap. The  payment cannot increase or decrease in any year by this dollar amount. In other words, it is the equivalent of less than 3/4% annual interest cap. The lifetime cap for owner occupied property is 9.95%.

Minimum payment will result in deferred interest. Interest only payments do not reduce principal. Payment minimums are recalculated annually. Monthly Arm index (MTA) changes affect the interest rate.

Information is based on interest rates effective 9/08/2005 with a fully indexed rate of 5.91%  and APR of 5.93%.
