We all know that putting extra payments down on your mortgage is going to pay off your mortgage faster and save you money. But what not everyone knows are the little insider tips that allow you to know to the penny, EXACTLY, when to use them to pay off your mortgage, how much to make them in, and exactly what you’ll save as a result.
See, it’s really NOT about how many you make, or how often, or even how much you make them in. When you’re trying to pay off your mortgage faster their is only one thing that matters.
You see mortgages are structured pretty creatively. Mortgage companies tell you that you’re only paying the 5-7% rate, but they never explain what that really means. Our mortgage payments are almost completely wasted on interest at the beginning of our mortgage. This is what makes it so difficult to pay off your mortgage.
What it means is that a $4000 payment may only $250 of principle. The entire rest of that payment goes to PURE INTEREST. It’s basically burning a hole in your pocket when it should go to pay your mortgage off.
Now, here’s how to beat it. If you make a $250 principle payment on its own… right before you make the $4000 payment then guess what? You just completed that entire payment without wasting $3750 on interest. You moves you amortization down the line to pay off your mortgage. Sure, you’ll still have to make a $4000 payment, but you pay your mortgage off $3750 earlier and it only cost you $250! That’s how banks think.
If you could get $3750 for every $250 you put in, how many times would you do it? As many as you good and you wouldn’t just pay your mortgage off, it’d evaporate.
If this doesn’t quite make sense yet then grab a copy of your amortization schedule or The Mortgage Loophole Report and analyze how they’ll pay off your mortgage. You’ll see.
Catch #1 – If you make a small prepayment at the beginning of the term, you’d pay off your mortgage MUCH earlier than you would by making a bigger principle payment at the end of your mortgage.
When you put the money in at the end you don’t even pay your mortgage off as fast or save near the amount of interest because most of your payment is going to principle anyway. As you pay off your mortgage they weaken. Your mortgage pay off time literally depends on this.
So, the secret to pay off your mortgage is to understand the way a mortgage amortization has been structures to accommodate certain methods to pay off your mortgage.
Catch #2 – Although you probably realize that this information is important to pay off your mortgage you probably won’t be able to apply it the the extent that you wish you could. Honestly, if you had all the extra cash to pay off your mortgage with, then you’d have made a bigger down payment on your home. It’s not until most of us have already been trying to pay off our mortgage that we start to get the extra cash to put towards the pay off.
There is a solution.
There is a “mortgage loophole” that home owners are finally realizing and using to pay off their mortgage. It truly is a revolution in the mortgage industry to help people pay off their mortgage. Don’t expect your local bank to tell you about it. They not only don’t want you to pay off your mortgage early but they haven’t been spreading the news among their mortgage brokers.
Anyway, I’d better stop upsetting banks with this insider information. Hopefully you can apply this information to pay off your mortgage immediately before your mortgage begins to amortize.
