You will likely then shift your attention to financing your home. Unless you've saved up enough money to buy the home outright with cash, you'll finance it with a mortgage from a bank or mortgage company. There are many different varieties of mortgages, but they all fall into one of two broad categories: fixed-rate mortgages and adjustable-rate mortgages (or ARMs). As the names imply, the interest rate on a fixed-rate mortgage stays the same throughout the life of the loan, while the rate on an ARM will change to reflect current market rates after a set period of time, which usually ranges anywhere from one to 10 years.
