    Impact of inflation on mortgage
    Please can someone help me on this:

    Bernie and Hilary have just married and currently live in a rent-free community in exchange for doing community chores and house repairs. They now plan to buy their own home and start a family. They aim to buy a two-bedroom flat in their local area. They have found out that flats such as these are currently on the market for 160,000. The general inflation rate is 2% a year but property-price inflation in their area is 6% a year. Both of these rates are expected to stay the same on average for the foreseeable future. The couple are confident they will be able to get a fixed interest-rate mortgage.

    Explain the impact of inflation on their mortgage.

    What is your understanding of a mortgage. Does the APR fluctuate? What are ARM's?

    Did you look up ARMs at least?
    What do you know about mortgages? If you tell us nothing, we will not help unless you try.
