Add A Few Dollars To Your Mortgage Payment

www.bigmailnow.com       Navigation

Many of us don't believe that a few dollars can make a big
difference. In a lot of cases that is true. But when it comes to
mortgages or any other type of loan, a few extra dollars can save
you Big Bucks.

The chart below gives examples of three different loan terms and
what paying between $75 to $100 more a month would do to the
mortgage. It is based on a $100,000.00 loan at 7% interest.

----------------------------------------------------------------
YearsInt Rate Payment InterestTotal of PaymentsSavings

Round Payment to $750.00 $93,994.86$193,994.86$45,513.14This loan
would be paid off in 259 months instead of 360.

Round Payment to $850.00 $69,409.58$169,409.58 $16,662.42This loan
would be paid off in 199 months instead of 240.

157% $898.93$61,789.40$161,789.40 N/A
Round Payment to $1000.00 $50,517.67 $150,517.65 $11,271.73This
loan would be paid off in 151 months instead of 180.
----------------------------------------------------------------

By adding $84.70 to your 30 year loan you can save $45,513.14
and pay the loan off in 21 1/2 years.

By adding $74.70 to your 20 year loan you can save $16,662.42
and pay the loan off in 16 1/2 years.

By adding $101.07 to your 15 year loan you can save $11,271.73
and pay the loan off in 12 1/2 years.

You can also see by the chart that obtaining a shorter loan term
when you buy your house can save a lot of money.

There are a couple of things that you need to check. First is
that your loan agreement doesn't allow the loan company to
charge penalties for early payment. Secondly, if you itemize
your federal income taxes and deduct mortgage interest, paying
less interest will mean a lower deduction. I believe it is safe
to say that the interest savings will far outweigh the tax
savings.

Even if you don't have $75 to $100 a month to add to your
mortgage payment, even $25 would save a lot.

months. Highly Recommended.
