What’s the best way to pay off your house quickly?
Many plans exists for paying down a mortgage more quickly, but the underlying principal remains the same. First, be sure your lender allows prepayment without a penalty. Second, each time you add extra funds to your payment, include a note stating you want the funds to be directed at your remaining principal. A common plan is to pay half your mortgage every two weeks, leading to 26 payments a year. The 26 half payments will equal 13 monthly payments and knock off as much as eight years! If possible, consider an extra payment once a quarter, and you’ll have that house paid down in 20 years or less. Interested in exploring your options?
