MILESTONE

You don’t have a car or lease payment anymore.

Looking to buy?

We recommend a shorter-term loan like 36 or 48 months.

Pair that with a slightly used car, not only will you save on interest you’ll eliminate a car payment completely.

Already have a car payment?

Refinancing to a 36 or 48-month term is critical.

Not only will you pay of the loan faster, you’ll save hundreds – possibly thousands – in interest.

MILESTONE

You have paid off your house.

Imagine owning your home free and clear! Here are two weapons available in the eliminate debt arsenal:

15-year mortgage

By selecting a shorter term mortgage, or refinancing to a shorter term, you can save yourself a tremendous amount of money over the life of the loan. The longer the term, the more you will pay in interest charges. If the shorter term payment is too high, consider purchasing a more modest home.

Pair a low rate with a shorter mortgage term like 15 years, and you’ll save thousands of dollars – plus eliminate your debt faster than you think.

For example, let’s say you finance a home for $250,000. By choosing a 15-year mortgage instead of a 30-year mortgage, you could save $81,227!*

Term30-Year15-Year
APR2.875%2.125%
Payment$1,037.23$1,623.20
Interest$123,403$42,176

A 15-year mortgage could save you
$81,227
in interest and 15 years of payments.

APR = Annual Percentage Rate.

Bi-weekly payments

Making bi-weekly payments, paying half of your monthly payment once every two weeks instead of monthly, is an easy way to pay down your mortgage faster. Doing so will result in an extra payment each year, therefore reducing the overall term of your mortgage and saving you tens of thousands in interest charges.

Owning your home can turn from dream to reality faster than you think.
