ARM & Interest Only ARM vs. Fixed Rate Mortgage

Use this calculator to compare a fixed-rate mortgage to two types of ARMs, a Fully Amortizing ARM and an Interest Only ARM. A fixed-rate mortgage has the same payment for the entire term of the loan. An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) has a rate that can change, causing your monthly payment to increase or decrease.
