EQUITY REPOSITIONING


The $25,000 Mistake caused by the "Myth-Conception" of Mortgages

Let's take a look at costly misperceptions held by millions of Americans.

  • Most people believe making extra principal payments on their mortgages saves them money.
  • Most believe mortgage interest is an expense that should be eliminated as soon as possible.
  • Most believe home equity has a rate of return and enhances their net worth.
  • Some homeowners are lured into thinking that bi-weekly payment plans are the answer.
  • Others rely on a 15-year mortgage with higher monthly payments rather than a 30-year term.

In actuality, such methods are not the wisest ways to accomplish a "free and clear" home. Through our MEDS strategy you can accumulate sufficient cash in a conservative, tax-deferred mortgage acceleration plan. If homeowners deposited any extra principle payments in a separate, liquid, and safe side fund, instead of giving them to their mortgage company, they would accumulate enough money to pay off the mortgage in as short a time frame as possible. Let me illustrate.

The $25,000 Dollar Mistake Millions of Homeowners Make

If I were to take out a new $150,000 15-year mortgage, my monthly payment would be $1,433.48. Equivalent to fifteen ANNUAL payments of $17, 202. However because of the tax benefit I receive (by deducting the interest on my mortgage payment on Schedule A of my tax return) Uncle Sam is in essence paying part of my annual mortgage payment with money I would have paid in taxes. This saves me $3,935 in taxes. This results in a net after-tax annual mortgage payment of $13, 267.

A homeowner consistently pays more mortgage interest each year with a 30-year mortgage than with a 15-year mortgage. Most people view this as a negative. That's why borrowers are motivated to take out a 15-year mortgage-in order to pay as little interest as possible

There is a Better Alternative

If we take the annual difference between the net after-tax payment on a 15-year mortgage and a 30-year mortgage each year, (see illustration below) and deposit that money in a tax-deferred, interest-bearing side fund (let's assume an 8% return), you will notice that by year fifteen, the conservative side fund will have accumulated $25,159.00 more than needed to pay off the mortgage!

Excess Cash Beyond Mortgage Balance = $25,159

Do you see why I refer to this as the $25,000 mistake millions of Americans make? You can imagine what a bigger mistake it is if your mortgage is greater than $150,000.

This concept should illustrate that it would be better to use a side fund instead of paying extra principle on the mortgage because it follows the 3 Rules of Prudent Investing. Why?

Because the Liquidity (#1), the Safety (#2), the Rate of Return (#3), and the Tax Benefits you would achieve from your money available in the side fund account far outweigh any hypothetical disadvantages-especially in the event of a financial emergency (refer to my article "Can a Mortgage Actually Save Your Life?").

To maximize the results of successfully managing equity, I recommend using a mortgage with an interest-only payment option and have a plan to follow that can help provide the discipline to set aside the difference in the mortgage payments.

In summary; The key is to understand how to have interest work for you rather than against you.
