“Should I Continue to Prepay my Mortgage?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

I guess maybe with the economy not looking so hot and Fed trying to keep rates low for a long time, I guess that rates may stay low for a while so no panic on refinancing. Hopefully in a few months my credit will get to where it needs to be.

Question for you, should I keep paying some of the principal down a bit each month?  I had been doing an extra $2,500 each month.  I seem to have so much money accumulating in my bank (I think 12 months + accumulating for taxes).

 

 

 

Most times I would not recommend prepaying a mortgage, especially when current rates are in the 2% & 3% range. But when the client’s current rate is in the 6’s, prepaying the current mortgage makes perfect sense.

Good morning Joe. I am in agreement with your advice. Pay down a higher rate if you cannot refinance. Enjoy your day!

Good morning Joe. I actually pay down my mortgage regularly just to take advantage of compounding interest. It's like having a 20 year note when only qualifying for a 30 year note.
