What is a two-step mortgage?

Ballet Slippers Good news. A two-step loan helps a buyer really dance! Although the traditional 30-year mortgage is still the most widely-used home financing, a relatively new variation on the theme is gaining popularity:
  • The two-step mortgage amortizes the loan over 30 years, but generally starts out at a lower rate than a typical 30-year loan.
  • The rate is lower because after the initial period, the interest rate is adjusted to the prevailing rate for the balance of the loan.
  • The initial step is pre-set for a specific period, say 3 to 10 years, and the second step is the remaining time, generally 20 to 27 years.
  • The lower initial rate makes the two-step loan popular with first-time buyers because monthly payments are lower, but it also helps homeowners buy up to their next home.
