Mortgage Saving Tips

Paying regular additional payments toward the principal balance yields singificant savings. Borrowers use different methods to meet this goal. For many people,Perhaps the simplest way to organize this process is by making 1 additional payment a year. If you can't afford to pay an extra whole payment all at once, you can divide your payment by 12 and write a check for that additional amount monthly. Finally, you can pay a half payment every two weeks. These options differ a little in reducing the final payback amount and shortening payback length, but each will significantly shorten the length of your mortgage and lower your total interest paid.

Lump Sum Extra Payment

It may not be possible for you to pay more every month or even every year. But you should remember that most mortgage contracts will allow you to make additional principal payments at any time. You can benefit from this rule to pay extra on your principal when you come into extra money. If, for example, you were to receive a large gift or tax refund four years into your mortgage, you could pay a portion of this windfall toward your mortgage loan principal, which would result in huge savings and a shorter payback period. For most loans, even this modest amount, paid early in the loan period, could offer huge savings in interest and in the length of the loan.
