    I did about 3 years ago but was smart enough to refinance exactly when the 2 year fixed guarantee was up. I now have a 6.5% IR which is 2% more that the ARM, but the stability was worth it.

    There is nothing wrong with ARMs, in fact they are often the correct loan to get. Unfortunately, the media has made them seem terrible. And they tend to lump IO loans and Option-ARMs together with fully amortizing ARMs and simply call the whole ball of wax “ARM”.

    You should get a loan to cover what you need and the people who are upset are the ones who didn’t plan accordingly. I have 2 properties with fixed rates and 2 with ARMs. I’m not pissed at all.

    These are the loans they picked for themselves. They might be kicking themselves, but not have anything to be “pissed” about. They all signed up for the loans, it was nothing that was forced on them.
