Lower monthly payments
A Traditional mortgage payment is comprised of principal and interest. With an interest-only mortgage, your payment is lower because you’re not required to pay on the principal portion of the loan. Important note
: Nothing precludes you from paying down the principal portion of the loan if you choose to.
Increase your cash flow
Buying a bigger house is one, but not the only advantage. You may prefer to use the money you save by making an interest-only payment as opposed to a traditional mortgage payment and invest it, or use it to make improvements or pay debts.
Who is best suited for an interest only loan?
- Persons with a High Net Worth:
Consumers who generally do not wish to tie up the equity in their home and would prefer to invest the extra money into markets of better return.
- Those with the potential for increasing income:
Consumers who are sure their income will grow but would like greater purchasing power and/or lower payments today.
- Homeowners who have plans to move in 3 to 7 years:
Consumers who know the time frame for home ownership is within a certain window of time and are more concerned with payments rather than paying down principal on the loan during that period of time.
- Real Estate Investors:
Consumers purchasing investment property find interest only loans very valuable when anticipated real estate appreciation is high.
