Adjustable-Rate Mortgage rate and payment changes:
The rate indicated for adjustable-rate mortgages is the initial rate and is subject to increase. Adjustable-Rate Loans may be amortized over 20, 25 or 30 years. Manufactured/Mobile with land is amortized over 15 or 20 years.

Example: The 5/1 ARM will have a constant interest rate for the first five years. Then the adjustable rate may change annually thereafter ("Change Date" as indicated in the Note) based on an "Index" which is the 1-Year Constant Maturity Treasury (1-Yr CMT) adjusted to a constant maturity of 1 year as made available by the Federal Reserve Board. The most recent index available as of 45 days before each Change Date is called the "Current Index". Before each Change Date, the Note Holder will calculate the new interest rate by adding the "Margin" to the "Current Index". The note holder will then round the result of this addition to the nearest one-eighth of one percentage point (0.125%). This rounded amount will be the interest rate until the next "Change Date". The rate may not adjust more than the Per Adjustment Cap indicated above on each "Change Date". The total loan adjustment will not adjust more than the Lifetime Cap indicated above over the lifetime of the loan. The Note Holder will then determine the amount of the monthly payment that would be sufficient to repay the unpaid principal that would be due in full on the maturity date at the new interest rate in substantially equal payments. The result of the calculation will be the new amount of monthly payment.
