How To Save Money Paying Your Mortgage

  • Make prepayments if permitted under your mortgage.
    • Depending on your interest rate, it might make sense to make additional prepayments beyond your regular monthly payments.
    • You can send an extra check or transfer money to the lender whenever you have extra money. 
  • Also check to find out if your lender allows you to pay half of the monthly payment every two weeks instead of the full amount once a month. This alternative reduces overall interest payments.

If you do make an extra mortgage payment, be sure to include a note indicating that you want the extra money applied to a reduction in your principal (the amount you borrowed).
