However, if you have an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) the interest rate fluctuates. Since the interest portion may rise or fall, the monthly payment amount may change every few months. Many borrowers also choose to include funds for their escrow account in the monthly payment, so that the lender can pay annual property taxes and insurance premiums.
