Paying off your mortgage faster

Macquarie Financial can help you save thousands of dollars in interest while reducing your principal faster. Here are your options:

1. Accelerate your payment schedule

Pay down your mortgage faster by selecting our accelerated weekly or accelerated bi-weekly payment options to make an additional monthly payment each year. This simple strategy can save thousands in interest costs.

This example is based on a $200,000 mortgage at a 5 year fixed rate of 4%, assuming no interest rate changes for the life of the mortgage.

Payment frequency Payment amount Amortization Estimated total interest cost Estimated mortgage balance after 5 years Payments
Monthly   $1,052.04 25 years $37,230.26 $174,107.86 12
Accelerated bi-weekly $526.02 25 years $36,615.77 $168,233.17      26
Accelerated weekly $263.01 25 years $36,586.99 $168,204.39 52

2. Increase your monthly payments up to 20 percent each year.

Increasing your payment by even a few dollars helps you pay down your mortgage faster—the increased amount goes directly toward reducing your principal.

3. Prepay up to 20 percent of your mortgage balance each year.

Make lump sum payments of up to 20 percent of the original borrowed amount each year. These extra payments are applied to your principal and help to reduce your interest costs and the outstanding balance of your mortgage. A great way to put your bonus or income tax return to use.

4. Choose a shorter amortization period.

Reduce the interest you pay by shortening the life of your Macquarie Financial mortgage.
