To pay your mortgage faster, some lenders offer an option to pay half payments every 2 wks instead of monthly full payments. (Like making 13 payments/yr.) Do it yourself by paying extra ea month toward the principle. Divide your normal payment by 12 & add that much or more to ea. monthly payment.
Check with your lender about how to submit extra payments. Your mortgage will be paid off faster & you will save thousands in interest over the years. Use an online mortgage calculator to see how much you can save by paying $50, $100 or $200 more ea. month.
