Conforming 5/25 Balloon Mortgage (aka 5 year balloon)
General Overview 5/25 Balloon mortgage - the rate is fixed for a period of 5 years and then converts to a new fixed rate for the remaining 25 years. The new rate is typically based on the Fannie Mae 60 day net yield index and is added to a pre-determined margin, usually 0.500. Note that converting to this new rate is permitted only if the prescribed conditions are met and if not, then the loan is due and payable to the lender as a balloon loan (review your loan documents carefully). The loan is fully amortized (or paid off) in 30 years if the normal payment schedule is followed.
