ARM Loan Adjustment Summary ///
This adjustable rate mortgage calculator assumes a worst case scenario for an adjustable rate mortgage. For this worst case scenario to take place, your ARM loan's "Index" will need to increase by at least 2 % at each one of the 12 month adjustments. Here is the definitions of each field:

Monthly Payment: Based on a loan amount of
200,000 and an start rate of 5.375%  your monthly payments would be 896. This is your worst case scenario of the maximum monthly payment after each interest rate adjustment . These mortgage payments do not include property taxes, homeowners insurance or PMI (private mortgage insurance) if applicable. 

Monthly Difference: This displays the difference in monthly mortgage payments from the initial starting monthly payments of
896 and the worst case scenario payment of 2015 at the first payment adjustment and the four following adjustments. Based on the information you provided, in 12 months your montly payment would increase by a maximum of  499 per month.

% Increase: The increase in monthly  payments as a percentage amount over the inititial starting monthly payments. In this scenario, assuming a worst case, your payments would increase by
2 % over your intitial monthly payments of 896.

Mortgage Rate: Your initial mortgage start rate is
5.375 %. Based on your selections, the maximum interest rate at the time of the first loan adjustment in 12 months would be 7.375 %. Typically most adjustable rate mortgages have a maximum 6% life time cap for the mortgage which would be 11.375 %. 

Loan Amortization: This indicates the amortization period of your adjustable rate mortgage. You are beginning with a 30 year mortgage. At your first mortgage payment adjustment, your mortgage payment is based on a
30 year amortized loan wtih an interest rate of 5.375%. At your second adjustment, your loan is calculated on a on 29 year amortized loan at the new higher mortgage rate. At each loan adjustment, your amortization schedule gets progressively shorter, thereby increasing the monthly payments.
Note: The amortization schedule used to calculate the new payment does not calculate your principal pay-down, therefore these estimates may be higher than the actual payments.
