Mortgage Free Sooner

4 easy steps are all it takes


Instead of montly payments, consider semi-monthly, biweekly, or weekly. It's easy and because you're making payments a bit sooner each month, it adds up to big savings over the years.


Shorten your amortization period: the number of years needed to pay off your mortgage. The less time it takes, the less you pay in interest.


Increase your regular payments by as much as double the current amount if you can afford to.


Each calendar year you can make an additional payment of up to 20% of your original mortgage balance, which is a fast route to mortgage freedom.

These options are available for all mortgages. Each calendar year the sum of options 3 and 4 cannot exceed 20% of the original mortgage principal. Prepayment penalities may apply for principal payments over the stated annual limit.
