25-year Fixed Bi-Weekly Mortgage
An alternative to a 30-year Mortgage
You could save thousands of dollars in interest by choosing a 25-year fixed rate Bi-Weekly mortgage over a traditional 30-year mortgage. What’s more, you could also build equity in your home faster by making bi-weekly payments over monthly payments. Read on to learn how you could benefit from choosing a 25-year Bi-Weekly mortgage.
Payments for bi-weekly mortgages are made every two weeks (26 regularly scheduled payments per year), which translates to 13 monthly payments each year. Making the equivalent of 13 monthly payments, as opposed to 12 payments per year, may allow you to pay less interest over the life of the loan, while also lowering the principal balance more quickly. Consider the following example:
|25-Year Fixed Mortgage with bi-weekly payments
||30-year Fixed Mortgage with monthly payments
|Principal balance: $200,000
||Principal balance: $200,000
|Annual percentage rate: 3.50%
||Annual percentage rate: 3.50%
|Approximate interest paid over life of loan: $86,698
||Approximate interest paid over life of loan: $123,312
By making bi-weekly payments on a 25-year mortgage, rather than monthly payments on a 30-year mortgage, borrowers may reduce the loan term up to 8 years, thereby saving thousands of dollars in interest.
There are several factors to consider when making an informed decision about whether a Bi-Weekly mortgage may be best for you. To name just a few, you may want to consider the equity you have in your current home or from a previous sale, the length of time you plan to own the home, the loan amount, and your ability to make bi-weekly payments.
