Q. Which is more important, increasing escrow or increasing principal payments?
A. The amount of interest owing on your loan is determined by the principle balance. By reducing the loan amount, you will pay less interest to the lender. Making an over payment to the escrow provider will not result in a savings.

Q. Does making an extra monthly mortgage payment result in a reduction in my monthly payments?
A. Making additional payments to your mortgage does not result in a decrease in your monthly payment; nevertheless, the overall interest paid is lowered.

Q. Can I make a mortgage payment on the sixteenth of the month?
A. Payments on the majority of mortgages are due on the first business day of each month. A 15-day grace period is standard on the majority of mortgages. If you are late with your monthly mortgage payment on the first, you have until the sixteenth to make it. Bear in mind, however, that postal delivery may be sluggish. Additionally, the servicer/lender is responsible for the opening the envelope and posting your payment to your account. A small delay might result in a late payment.

Q. What happens when you make extra principal payments on a mortgage?
