A traditional adjustable rate loan can be riskier than a fixed rate, yet today's popular "hybrid" ARM loans can also provide a very tangible benefit for those who don't expect to have their home or their loan past the initial fixed period.. These loans have rates that are fixed and locked in for exceed the average time between refinancing or sale.

A fixed rate loan is a great insurance policy against future uncertainty, yet, like all insurance it comes with a premium attached.
