ARMing You for the Future in Mortgages
Thursday May 19, 2022 at 1pm central time
Sponsored by ACES Quality Management
We’ve witnessed a near instantaneous 100bps skyrocket in rates and the mortgage market dynamic is evolving. Property values have also seen a steady increase in valuation and “affordability” is putting a crimp on mortgage forecasts. The member is facing tough choices. Should they lock in rates today on a 30yr fixed rate loan? Or should they look at other options perhaps with the return of the adjustable rate mortgage? ARMs have represented less than 5% of the overall mortgage market due to ultra low 30 year fixed rates but that’s starting to turn. Credit Union lenders are also faced with a shift in the index for ARMs. Should you use CMT, SOFR, LIBOR, AmeriLibor or some other index? We will tackle all of those questions and more.
