Y U P !

I’m not a banking guru, but things are turning down already some states have 20% to 30% cancellation on new house buys.

I would only ever sign up for an ARM loan if I had the money available to pay off the full mortgage on a moment’s notice and there was no penalty to do so in the loan.

Rates are not going down and I don’t expect them to in the next year.

I recommend Conventional and refi when appropriate. This keeps you in control versus the lending institution.
