The 20 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage
How to Pay Off Your Mortgage Early

What would you do with an extra $87,789? Meet the 20 year fixed rate mortgage. The 20 year mortgage builds equity faster while the homeowner pays less interest to the bank. It's a great way to pay off a mortgage early and save 10 years of interest compared to a 30 year fixed rate mortgage.

In fact, it feels like a customized mortgage, created with your individualized plans in mind.

How Much Can a 20 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Save

How much money will you save by shaving off 10 years from your mortgage term?

Example: Suppose you borrowed $200,000 at 6 percent for 30 years. $231,676 is the amount of interest you will owe the bank to pay off the mortgage.

Now take the same $200,000 at 6 percent but substitute 20 years for the length of the mortgage term. The interest paid over 20 years is $143,887, a difference of $87,789.

Think for a moment what would it mean to your future if you could deposit $87,789 into your bank account instead of paying it to the mortgage company.
