Early Mortgage Payoff

If you want to quickly build equity in your home and seriously reduce your interest payments, you should consider switching to a 15-year fixed rate mortgage. A 15-year fixed can help homeowners save over $100,000* over the life of their loan. It can also help you lock in today’s historically low rates and a mortgage payment that won’t go up.

You can estimate your new payment using our 15 vs 30 year mortgage calculator. Nevertheless, your exact monthly payment depends on the interest rate you qualify for, the term you select, and other factors. Contact us to review your options and calculate your new payment.

Comparing 15 year vs. 30 year mortgages

How does a 15-year mortgage reduce your total payments by over $100,000?* It’s easy: for the first 10 years of a 30-year mortgage, most of your monthly payment is going to interest, not principal. And the principal is what you need to pay off to own your home free and clear.

With a 15-year mortgage, you’re paying much more in principal every month, making a significant dent in your total loan amount. And if your 30-year interest rate is high, refinancing might mean that your 15-year monthly payment is about the same. Imagine paying off your house faster, with less interest, at about the same monthly mortgage payment!

* Savings example: Take a $300,000 loan on a basic single family home with a 75% LTV ratio. As of 8/3/2017, the 30-year fixed rate is 3.875% and 15-year rate is 3.125%. The 30-year monthly payment is $1,411, which multiplied by 360 totals $507,960. The 15 year payment is $2,108, which multiplied by 180 totals $379,440. So total savings are $128,520!
