Lowering Your Payments
Are you refinancing primarily to lower your rate and monthly payments? Then a low, fixed rate loan may be the best option for you.

Even when interest rates rise, a fixed rate mortgage must remain at the same, low interest rate, unlike an ARM. A fixed-rate mortgage is especially a wise choice if you don't plan to move within the next 5 years or so. But if you do plan to move more quickly, you should consider an ARM with a low initial rate in order to achieve lower mortgage payments.
