An adjusted rate mortgage is a type of loan that comes with a variable interest rate.This means,that the interest depends on the market rate.Hence,you can expect varied interest rates throughout the period of your loan,
which is the opposite of what a fixed rate mortgage is. As the term implies,fixed rate comes with a definite interest until the loan period is over. For some people adjustable rate mortgages may be practical, particularly when the interest goes down. However, then the opposite happens, you may find it more difficult repaying it because of massive interest rates.
