The FHA ARM combines the low initial interest rate of an adjustable rate
mortgage with the low down payment and liberal qualifying ratios of FHA-insured
mortgages to produce one of the most affordable loan products. The FHA ARM

interest rate caps that are lower than most ARM programs, as well as an extended
period before the first rate change (up to 18 months, depending on the closing
date). The FHA ARM also offers a lower margin than other ARM programs, which helps to
