yep, jim is right,

einstein said the most powerful force in the universe is compound interest.
and he was 100% correct. i got a balloon note on my mortgage. the interest is 1000 and the principle is 300. i told my banker that i wanted to payoff the note when it ballooned again. he said it balloons in 2022. you need to put 1280 in for the note and add 3000 to get it paid off by 2/22. so that is what i'm doing. i used daves calculator as jim suggested and i was amazed at the results. 80k is a lot of cash that i will be saving on interest in 3 years.:thumbup:

Good points Jim, started to do the Ramsey thing a long time ago. Got down to zero debt, bought our land and saved like hell for 4 years plus. As you well know we are close to breaking ground and hope to close on our construction loan in short order. Our mortgage will be considerably less than our rent and we plan to put another $10K plus to the principle each year. It works for sure :thumbsup:

Here’s a tip. Do everything you can to pay your house off then keep making that payment to yourself. You’ll watch the dough just pile up.

I'm a big fan of 20% down and a 15 year note.
Most people would be, but this works for the 15 yr. mortgage too. the vast majority of people buying a home don't have the whole 20%. but that another discussion....

one step at a time.... I agree, saving for the future is extremely important...

We were fortunate enough to refinance our current house from a 5 year balloon to a 15 year fixed and couldn’t be happier. Hard to go wrong even if you just make the minimum.
