Researchers at the University of Chicago declare an — adjustable rate mortgage provides a significant boost to the economy, thanks in large part to the lower initial payment, as reported by Consumer Affairs. In this study, researchers found a mortgage payment reduction of $150 corresponds to this increase in spending along with a reduction in mortgage defaults.
Often, this money is used to improve one's credit rating or to purchase a vehicle. In addition, individuals making use of this type of loan tend to pay their credit card debt down, with approximately 70 percent of the money they save on the mortgage being used for this purpose, as reported in the study.
"As this study shows, obtaining an adjustable rate mortgage may lead to a reduction in credit card delinquencies and mortgage defaults. Individuals who have overlooked this type of loan in the past need to reconsider, taking these benefits into account," Michael Paul, spokesperson for Direct Mortgage Loans, announces.
An adjustable rate mortgage benefits those looking to refinance or move within the next decade, typically within five, seven, or ten years. The interest rates run lower than those seen with 30 year fixed rates, and rate changes are capped at a certain percentage above the initial fixed rate.
The cap protects consumers from rising interest rates, and the fixed period lasts for the time established in the initial mortgage contract. After the initial period expires, the lender adjusts the rate a maximum of one time per year. Savings achieved with this type of loan tend to be significant, based on many variables.
