Adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM)
Adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is a mortgage that features predetermined adjustments of the loan interest rate at regular intervals based on an established index.
The interest rate is adjusted at each interval to a rate equivalent to the index value plus a predetermined spread, or margin, over the index, usually subject to per-interval and to life-of-loan interest rate and/or payment rate caps.
