Why choose an adjustable rate mortgage?

An adjustable rate mortgage is a popular choice for those who plan to own their home for a shorter period of time. You pay a fixed, lower interest rate for a set number of years, and then transition to an adjustable rate that may rise or fall over the life of your loan. You can secure annual and lifetime interest rate caps with Webster, and we’ll provide pre-determined rate change dates for the life of the loan so you know what to expect.
