Simple Tips To Pay Off Your Home Sooner
We all want to be debt free – especially when it comes to our home loan, typically one of our highest monthly expenses. Here are two simple tricks that may help you pay off your home sooner.
1. Include an extra principal payment every month. Even paying an extra $50 each month can shave as much as 2 years off your term.
2. Refinance to a shorter term, like with our 20-year or 15-year home loans. With today’s low rates, you can be mortgage free sooner with a shorter term.
