Alternative Advantages

Are you looking for a resource for a jumbo loan, but with a smaller payment than the traditional Principal, Interest, Taxes, and Insurance (PITI)? As part of our Alternative Advantage Program, PRM offers a Jumbo Interest-Only Adjustable Rate Mortgage.

Why Would Anyone Want an Interest-Only Mortgage?

There are various reasons why someone would want an interest-only mortgage. We'll list out some of the most common reasons among consumers today, but please note that we do not promote or guarantee any of these reasons. You should have a thorough discussion with your Mortgage Advisor before you commit to an interest-only or adjustable-rate mortgage product so you're fully aware of how your loan payments will change over time. Having said that, here are the most popular reasons why people may choose to use an interest-only product:
  • Monthly payments are low during the interest-only loan term.
  • Extra funds that would ordinarily go toward mortgage principal can instead be applied toward investments with a higher rate of return.
  • During the interest-only period, the whole amount of the monthly payment may qualify as tax-deductible.*
  • Plan on selling home and paying off the full mortgage before the interest-only period elapses.

What's Different About Our New Loan Product?

The Jumbo Interest-Only ARM loan is part of the Alternative Advantage Loan Products we offer here at PRM. These loans fall outside of the requirements of a Qualified Mortgage (QM), which typically makes financing harder to find for these specific loan programs, even though they are still loans that consumers want. The Jumbo Interest-Only ARM loan is a way to provide additional financing options for applicants or properties that are outside the scope of traditional QM loans. In other words, these loans are non-QM because they exceed the conforming loan limits, and they contain interest-only features. In today's mortgage environment, it can be difficult to find a lender who offers the specific combination of jumbo loan amounts, interest-only, and adjustable-rate features all in the same product.
