15 vs 30 Yr. Loans: The Added Cost to Retire a 30-Year Loan in 15 « Len Penzo dot Com

When it comes to the great mortgage debate, I’ve already explained my position regarding 15- and 30-year loans: 30-year loans are better for a multitude of reasons. In fact, I think it’s a no-brainer.

I remember when I bought my first home in 1990, interest rates were in double-digit territory. Today, 30-year loans make more sense than ever with mortgage interest rates continuing to set new all-time lows. In fact, last week, a person with excellent credit could get a 30-year loan for rates as low as 3.375 percent and 15-year loans for an incredible 2.75 percent.

Enjoy it while you can, folks. Although it’s hard to believe, higher interest rates are inevitable.
