what's an adjustable rate mortgage (ARm)?
Adjustable-rate mortgages, or ARMs, have monthly payments that can move up and down as interest rates fluctuate.
Most ARMs have an initial fixed-rate period during which the borrower's rate doesn't change, followed by a longer period during which the rate changes at preset intervals.

What's a home equity line of credit (heloc)?
Just like a home equity loan, a HELOC depends on how much equity you've built up in your home. The amount you can borrow is essentially the difference between what your home is worth and how much you still owe on your mortgage. Instead of receiving one large loan, though, you can get a line of credit - a set amount from which you can regularly withdraw funds. In that sense, it's like a credit card, except the interest rates are usually lower.
