If you happen to be one of the many home owners across the country who are currently waiting for their adjustable mortgage to reset and are unsure what to do next then the article below should help you figure out what you need to do.

Most mortgage experts agree you should start looking for a new loan to replace your ARM loan about six months before it resets. This will give you enough time to shop around with no stress. It will also give you ample time to take care of any credit issues that may come up.

First you will need to find out when your adjustable home mortgage is going to reset. This is easy to find information that should be in the packet of paper work that you were given at closing. It is normally towards the back and is called the adjustable rate rider.

Next you should call a local mortgage broker or bank and check what the rates are for a fixed rate mortgage. Because rates and closing costs will vary from lender to lender, it is best to call a few different lenders and see who has the best deal before you have your credit pulled or commit to a deal.

Should I Take Another Adjustable Loan

  • If you are refinancing out of an ARM most people recommend that you switch over to a fixed rate home loan, especially in todays unstable economy.

  • But if you think you may want another variable rate loan then make sure you meet these basic requirements before you sign any papers.

  • You make enough to pay the loan at its highest adjusted level.

  • Make sure you have sufficient equity in your home so you can still refinance if your homes value drops in the future.

  • You know you will be moving before your new variable rate loan adjusts.
By following the tips and advice above you should be able to smoothly transition into a fixed rate mortgage or make the decision to refinance with another adjustable rate home loan. Just remember to think everything through and make no decisions hastily.
