What is an accelerated mortgage payment?

Rounding it up

  • Accelerated mortgage payments are a great way to free up some capital that you’re currently committing to monthly payments.

  • However, accelerated mortgage payments are not headache-free. They may come with prepayment penalties, depending on the type of mortgage contract you have.

  • These penalties can stack up into the five digits, so ensure you do the calculations and understand all terms before making any decisions.
