Brent is pondering whether to increase his monthly payment by 15% to save time and money. So he took his monthly payment of 1880.76 and multiplied it by 1.15, a 15% increase, to get $2,162.87. By increasing his monthly payment by 15%, he would save 6 years and 4 months, but more importantly she would save $60,655.65 by paying more each month! To get this, he used the present value equation to find for the value of months it would take. A 15% increase would definitely be worth the time and money!

2,162.87(285)= $616,417.95

677,073.60 - 616,417.95= $60,655.65 saved
