💰 How can you save money by asking a simple question?

Asking your lender this ONE question could save you big.
Does my loan have a pre-payment penalty?
Making just ONE extra payment each year can shave years off your mortgage term and save you thousands in interest.
Let’s look at a client with a 30-year mortgage of $400,000 at a 6% interest rate. Without extra payments, the total interest paid over the loan term is approximately $463,353
With ONE extra payment of $2,400 each year ($200/mo) the interest drops to $368,734, and the loan would be paid off 5 years earlier than the original term.
And the savings hitting their pocket? $94,619 over the life of the loan
BUT Make sure to ask your lender about pre-payment penalties (penalties can be steep – often 2% of the loan balance).
Check with your lender so you can save on your timeline. And if you need a lender recommendation, send me a message!
