Adjustable Rate Mortgage

ARM. A 

Mortgage

 with an 

Interest

 rate that may change, usually in response to changes in the Treasury 

Bill

 rate or the 

Prime

 rate. The purpose of the 

Interest

 rate 

Adjustment

 is primarily to bring the 

Interest

 rate on the mortgage 

In line

 with 

Market rate

. The 

Mortgage

 holder is protected by a maximum 

Interest

 rate (called a ceiling), which might be reset annually. ARMs usually start with better rates than 

Fixed rate

 mortgages, in 

Order

 to compensate the borrower for the additional 

Risk

 that future 

Interest

 rate fluctuations will create.
