An issue for many homeowners is managing income and expenses, or "cash flow". Income varies and uplanned expenses come up. For many, our mortgage payment is our largest expense, and also the least flexible. The Cash Flow Adjustable Rate Mortgage was designed to give you control over your mortgage payment. You have the option of choosing one of four payment options each month based on your cash flow needs.
Minimum Payment A payment is set for 12 or 60 months at a reduced rate. The minimum payment rate for the 12 month option is currently 1.00% and the 60 month option is 1.90%. This maximizes cash flow and may also defer payment of interest allowing greater flexibility in managing your tax deductions. This minimum payment can not increase by more than 7.5% each year. Read about the important tax considerations of a cash flow adjustable rate mortgage. If you have concerns over deferred interest, read about the small amount of appreciation required to offset it.
Interest Only Payment Defer paying principal and improve cash flow. This option is not available if the interest only payment would be less than the minimum payment.
The Cash Flow Arm series allows you to choose your index from the 1 month LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) or the MTA (12 Month Treasury Average).
Here is a 10 year average comparison between a 30 year fixed and fully indexed LIBOR, MTA, COFI, and the 1 year Treasury Index in chart form.
Additional Options If you want the additional security of a fixed payment while still taking advantage of the low payment rates, there is a 5 year fixed payment option. With the Cash Flow ARM 5 year Fixed Payment, you have a fixed minimum payment for five years. You have the four payment options to select from monthly to manage your cash flow. You also can increase the term of your loan from 30 to 40 years lowering your payment further. LTVs are available up to 100%!
The Minimum Payment Advantage The example below is based on a $400,000 mortgage. It compares a traditional 30 year fixed rate payment based on the above 10 year average to the minimum payment based on the 10 year average. Assumes that the Minimum Payment increases by the maximum 7.5% per year.
