In a recent survey done by CHMC, it was discovered that more than 44% of current home owners are paying more than the minimum payment required for their mortgage. What this means is that these home owners are paying a little extra every week, second week or monthly.
Why would soeone pay more than required? That's a great question! 44% of the home owners want to pay down the mortgage a bit faster (sometimes much faster) which in return increases the equity in their home. This can give them other options on the financial side.
Another good reason to do so is that if the interest rates go up at a certain point in time, they will already be used to the higher payments and it won't affect their lifestyle.
