TYPES OF STANDARD ADJUSTABLE RATE MORTGAGES (ARM's)
Several adjustable rate mortgages, ARMs, are available to homeowners and they include 6-Month Certificate of Deposit ARM, 1-Year Treasury Spot ARM, 6-Month Treasury Average ARM, and the 12-Month Treasury Average ARM.

As a borrower it is important to watch the market and speak with your mortgage broker to decide which type of ARM will best fit your home loan needs.
