Mortgage Basics 101 – 15yr vs. 30yr (Part III of III)

A 15 year loan is great because you own the home outrighr in 15 years. Qualifying for one won’t be as easy and what if that larger payment becomes diificult to keep up with? Solution – take the 30 year loan and use an online calculator to see how much extra you need to pay each month to oay off your loan in 15 years! The great thing about doing it this way is that if you find you that you need to skip a month or two or even altogether, you are not penalized at all. You simply go back to making the payment that was calculated for your 30 year loan.    This set up puts you in the driver’s seat. In essence,  anyone can turn a 30 year loan into a 15 year loan without qualifying for one. Next Blog 1-22-13.
