Bi-Weekly Mortgage Calculator & Bi-Monthly Mortgage Calculator

Bi-weekly mortgage or bi-monthly mortgage – As the names imply, these mortgage types have two payments per month. What’s the difference you ask? Plenty, actually. A bi-monthly mortgage is essentially the same as a typical monthly mortgage except that payments are made twice a month – monthly mortgage payment split in half and paid every two weeks. A bi-weekly mortgage deducts the amount reduced from the principal with every mortgage payment so that the total calculated interest is reduced and therefore reduces the term of the loan. This may seem like peanuts at face value but actually can be quite substantial as a typical 30-year fixed rate mortgage that is set up for bi-weekly payments will be paid off in a little under 24 years.
