If you are not sure that an I-O mortgage payment or a payment-option ARM makes sense for you, there are several other alternatives you could consider.
• Find out if you qualify for a community housing program that offers lower interest rates or reduced fees for first-time homebuyers, making homeownership more affordable.
• Consider a fixed-rate mortgage or a fully amortizing ARM. Shop around for terms and features that fit your needs and your budget.
• Take more time to save for a larger down payment, reducing the amount you need to borrow and making your mortgage payments more affordable.
• Look for a less expensive home. Once you build up equity, you could buy a more expensive home.
Have a wonderful day and please let me know if you need anything.
