Now that you’ve called us for a quote, let’s take a look at how a 15 year loan compares to a 30 year  loan.

The interest rate for a 15 year loan might be lower but the loan is repaid over a shorter period, so you’ll save on overall interest paid but your monthly payments will be higher.

For example, try inserting 3.5 for the 30 year loan and 3.125 for the 15 year loan.
