Determining which mortgage term is right for you can be a challenge. With a 15 year mortgage you will pay significantly less interest, but only if you can afford the higher monthly payment. Use this calculator to compare these two mortgage terms, and let us help you decide which term is better for you.
Will you save money by refinancing now? That depends on a multitude of factors. These factors include your existing interest rate, the current interest rates, closing costs and how long you plan to stay in your home. Use this calculator to sort through the confusion, and determine if refinancing your mortgage is a sound financial decision.
Should you buy points? Buying points when you close your mortgage can reduce its interest rate, which in turn reduces your monthly payment. However, each "point" will cost you 1% of your mortgage balance. This calculator helps determine if you should pay for points or use the money to increase your down payment.
