California mortgage interest rates vary as the index rates tied to CDs, U. S. Treasury bills, or other indexes vary. Mortgage lenders add between two and four percentage points of the index as their interest rate. If you have a fixed rate mortgage, the interest on your loan will not change.
On the other hand, if you have an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM), when it is time for your interest to change, it will either go up or down. This can be to your advantage, if the rate goes down. It can, however, have an undesirable impact on your monthly premium. If the rate goes up, you can expect an increase in your mortgage payment. To safeguard your financial obligations, make sure you have a cap on the amount by which the mortgage company can raise the interest.
