Bi-Weekly Mortgage Structure
Ask yourself this question... What is the biggest investment of your life?
Usually the answer is your home, but actually it is your mortgage!
Mortgage amount: $150,000.00
Current payment: $975.00 per month
Term: 360 months
Interest Rate: 5.5 %
Here are the troubling facts about your 30 year mortgage:
• You will pay approximately 2.04 times the amount you originally borrowed!
• After paying your mortgage for 10 years, you will still owe 82.54% of what you borrowed!
• After paying your mortgage for 15 years, you will still owe 69.49% of what you borrowed!
Let's see why!
Between the first and last payment on your mortgage:
• The amount you originally borrowed is $150,000.00 (principal)
• The total interest you will pay is $156,607.75
• The total cost of your mortgage is $306,607.75 (principal + interest)
Your total cost will be 204.41% of the original amount you borrowed!
How can this be possible? Take a closer look at the REAL COSTS!
After paying on your mortgage for 10 years...
• You will have made a total of 120 monthly payments
• The total amount you will have paid then will be: $102,201.60
• Out of the $102,201.60 you will have paid in principal and interest, only$26,188.00 has gone to reduce your principal! The rest has gone to paying interest!
• So after 10 years of payments totaling $102,201.60, only 17.46% of your principal has been paid off!
