New Flexible Mortgage could be a game-changer!There’s a great new flexible interest-only mortgage product that could prove beneficial for a number of borrowers, including first-timers, real estate investors, professionals, seasonal workers and others looking for lower monthly mortgage payments.
Designed to help borrowers increase monthly cash flow by providing maximum flexibility, this product can be used for both purchases and refinances.
I recently tried this product out and was really impressed!

This savings was possible thanks to the ability to place 50% of the mortgage as an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) and 50% as interest only.
