Adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) are not as popular as fixed rate mortgages but still make up a significant part of the total housing market. The primary advantage of an ARM is that it offers a lower initial interest rate and monthly payment than a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. The lower initial interest rate can be fixed for up to ten years.

During the initial fixed rate period, the interest rate will be lower than what it would have been had the borrower taken out a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. However, after the initial fixed rate period is over, the interest rate most likely will rise at a regular interval based on several factors.

Some borrowers are willing to take the risk of their rate rising considerably because they believe the savings realized in the early years is worth the risk. Some believe that they will be able to refinance before the fixed rate period ends. Interest rates do run in cycles, but the problem is one never knows how long or short the cycles will be.

Why get an adjustable rate mortgage?

  • Save thousands in payments vs. a fixed rate loan during the initial period.

  • Use the savings to pay down other debt or for whatever you like.

  • Great option if you intend to refinance or sell your home in an expected time frame.

  • Put as little as 5% down (FHA 3.5%), or

  • Refinance up to 95% of your home’s value

At Shoreline Mortgage we offer ARM programs with initial fixed rate periods of 5, 7 and 10 years. Visit our specific ARM program pages to see if an ARM program is right for you.

I have used Mike at Shoreline many times. I keep going back because there is noone better to work with. I have used others but they simply cannot touch the personalized and professional service that Mike and Shoreline provide. I am a client for life.

Our particular residential situation was unusually complicated because we had to choose loan size/package, we have multiple rental properties with mortgages and have multiple income streams not dominated by traditional employment. Michael Minkoff was extremely effective at helping us navigate through all of this complexity in a very organized, helpful fashion to an excellent financial and personal conclusion. Thank you, Michael.

This was my second refinance with Michael Minkoff and Shoreline and I would not deal with anyone else. He offers great guidance and patience through the refinance process. He gets the job done quickly and will smooth any wrinkles in the process. He is always available to answer any questions or concerns before, during and after the refinance. His professionalism is unparalleled! I highly recommend his services.

I have dealt with Michael Minkoff in the past. And I found him to be every professional, honest and very forthcoming. This is my third opportunity to have dealt with him on the purchase of Homes and condominiums. And Michael has never disappointed me in any way, during the procedures and purchases of any properties. Over the years I have thought of Michael as more of a friend than a business acquaintance. Michael performs his task over and above its competitors with ease. You guys have a real gem on your hands... Michael Minkoff THE BEST definitely 5 stars.

Michael Minkoff was great. He worked through all the different ways we could structure our loan and helped us find the one that was absolutely best for our situation. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond to us throughout the process and yet I never felt rushed, as he made sure we understood everything happening throughout the process. I have been and will continue to recommended him to others I know looking for a mortgage.

Our good friend recommended Michael and he helped us to secure a mortgage on our second house in Miramar, FL. We closed our house right on time without any delays. Michael took care of every single detail in the loan approval process and explained very clearly about the different options that was available to us. He guided us in such a professional manner that we didn’t have to worry about anything. He was very prompt and kept us updated throughout the process which went very smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with him and will highly recommend him to our friends too. Thank you Michael!

This is the second house we've bough with Michael's help and he made it a painless process yet again. He is always on top of all of the paperwork needed to buy a house, it made it so easy on us. He is professional and such a pleasure to work with.

Throughout the entire process of purchasing my first home, Michael gave me the kind of service and guidance that made me feel as though my needs were his highest priority, and sometimes even his only priority. I certainly felt as though Michael made a significant effort to establish trust and a personal rapport with me, which is critically important for me when dealing in financial matters. As it relates to knowledge of the industry and available products, Michael's level of expertise is yet another reason to feel as though your needs are in the best hands. I have already recommended Michael to three people, and plan to continue doing so whenever a friend, colleague, or family member is considering buying a home or refinancing.

Working with Michael was the best decision we made. He was helpful and informative through the entire process. There were nights that he was up sending me emails about how to quickly repair my credit score, while most people would be sleeping. His dedication to customer service and finding the best mortgage to fit his clients needs is exactly why we will be calling Michael the next time we are purchasing a house.

Mike Minkoff did an outstanding job with my two refinances at the same time! I asked many questions and came up with multiple scenarios and Mike was more than happy to answer everything. He went above and beyond and he knows his stuff.
