WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF 15- AND 30-YEAR LOAN TERMS



30-Year:



In the first 23 years of the loan, more interest is paid off than principal, meaning larger tax deductions.
As inflation and costs of living increase, mortgage payments become a smaller part of overall expenses.



15-year:



Loan is usually made at a lower interest rate.

Equity is built faster because early payments pay more principal.
