What is a convertible rate mortgage?

A convertible rate mortgage starts out as an adjustable-rate mortgage but can be changed to a fixed-rate mortgage after a specific amount of time. This gives borrowers more options when it comes to paying back their home loan. Convertible mortgages also offer flexible payment schedules, whether weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or semi-monthly.

What are the benefits of a convertible mortgage?

Convertible mortgages allow borrowers to make a home purchase while still providing the possibility to take advantage of decreases in mortgage rates. Instead of being forced to take out an adjustable-rate mortgage that may leave you open to rate increases, or locking in a fixed-rate mortgage at a time when interest rates may drop, convertible mortgages act as a compromise between the two. Borrowers start out with an adjustable-rate mortgage that can be converted into a fixed-rate mortgage if rates drop.

However, there may be fees associated with converting a convertible mortgage from adjustable-rate to fixed-rate.
