Reduce Your 30yr Loan Term By 6 Years!

I try not to bore anyone with Real Estate information however, I want to be sure that everyone has this useful tip for reducing the number of years you are paying your mortgage. For those of us who just can't seem to pay an extra mortgage payment every year...give this a try.

Pay your mortgage bi-weekly! Bi-weekly programs can be setup through your current loan servicing company (Chase, WellsFargo, BOA, etc) and may have an initial set-up fee of $100 - $250 and sometimes free if you also have a bank account with the lender.

Bi-weekly payments does NOT mean you pay the mortgage amount twice, rather you pay half on the 1st and the other half on the 15th.
(Example: $1,000 monthly payment = $500 every other week or bi-weekly)

With the bi-weekly mortgage plan, every year one additional mortgage payment is made. That extra payment goes toward the principal of the loan. Since you are reducing the amount of the loan balance quicker, you are also reducing the amount of interest charged over the life of the loan.
