With an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), the interest rate can change periodically based on the ARM program chosen, in relation to an index. While the monthly principal and interest payments made on a fixed-rate mortgage are stable, payments on an ARM loan are likely to change.
A pre-qualification is a basic review of your finances to determine if you would qualify for a mortgage. In general, a pre-qualification is based on unverified information you provide and does not include a credit check.
