- Time Saved: 85.74 Months or 7.145 Years
- Amount of Money Saved: $72,349.32
Justification: The aforesaid information can be calculated using the Present Value of an Annuity equation, with an augmented monthly mortgage payment which is determined by increasing the minimum payment of $1619.64 by 15%. This calculation yields a value of $1862.59, which is then used with the fixed interest rate of 4.625% and the list price of $315,000 to find the new amount of time needed to pay off the loan. Next, the number of years needed to pay off the loan with and without the 15% increase can be multiplied by the each respective monthly payment with and without the 15% increase to find the amount saved.
