There's a trick to reduce the repayment period of your mortgage and save thousands in interest: Make additional payments which are applied toward the loan principal. Borrowers pay against principal by employing various techniques. For many people,Perhaps the simplest way to organize this process is to make 1 additional payment every year. Of course, many people will not be able to afford such an enormous additional expense, so dividing one extra payment into 12 additional monthly payments is a great option too. Another very popular option is to pay a half payment every other week. The result is you will make one additional monthly payment in a year. These options differ slightly in lowering the final payback amount and reducing payback length, but they will all significantly shorten the length of your mortgage and lower your total interest paid.
Some people can't manage any extra payments. Keep in mind that almost all mortgages will allow you to make additional payments to your principal at any point during repayment. You can benefit from this provision to pay extra on your mortgage principal any time you get some extra money. If, for example, you were to receive an unexpected windfall just a few years into your mortgage, paying several thousand dollars into your mortgage principal can significantly reduce the duration of your loan and save enormously on interest paid over the duration of the loan. For most loans, even a relatively modest amount, paid early enough in the loan period, could offer huge savings in interest and in the length of the loan.
