The magic trick to paying off a mortgage in a shorter time frame

In this episode we discuss the magic trick to paying off a mortgage in a shorter time frame, to save thousands in interest costs. The trick is that there is no magic trick – plain and simple. Like the dream of 7-minute abs, or 6-minute abs…. (but what about 5-minute abs!) it takes a bit of work to get it done.

We look at:

  • One simple strategy is to make your mortgage payments weekly, in addition to increasing your repayments.
  • With this formula you can halve your mortgage from a 30-year term into 15 years.
  • We’ll deep dive into ways to do this, but start with the single simplest and most effective way to crush debt.
  • Doing this can save literally thousands in interest payments and increase your financial freedom.
  • We also discuss different interest rates. Obviously with higher interest rates, you save a lot more.
  • Finally, we run through whether it’s worth investing the money instead, or repaying your debt.
