My First HOME!

I am purchasing a 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom home, that is located on

8525 W 90th St, Overland Park, KS 66212. The home is worth $199,950. The minimum monthly mortgage on the house is $1,142 Which includes Taxes, Homeowners Insurance and P&I. I am putting $39,990 down, as a 20% down payment. I have a 30 year fixed rate loan of 4.625%.

15% more

For the minimum mortgage on my house right now not including Taxes, Homeowners Insurance and P&I, totals $823 monthly. If you multiply 823 times .15 you get $123.45, which is 15% of the minimum amount. Using the equation below I found that if I paid $123.45 more each month totaling $946.45, I would be saving myself ~3.7 or 4 years off of my 30 year fixed loan.
