What biweekly payments are, how they save you money, and how to double your savings.

What is a Bi-weekly Mortgage Payment?

In case you're not familiar with it, a biweekly mortgage payment is arrived at by dividing your monthly payment in half and then making one-half of your mortgage payment every two weeks.

As a result, you will end up making a total of 13 monthly payments per year instead of 12. As the calculator will show you, this can ...

Save you thousands of dollars in interest charges and allow you to pay off your home loan years ahead of schedule -- while you barely notice the increased principal prepayments.

However, before you start a biweekly payment program, there is something you need to watch out for.

Beware of Excessively Greedy Mortgage Companies

Since making biweekly payments results in the prepayment of principal ahead of the mortgage terms, there are unscrupulous mortgage companies that take offense to you cutting into their future profit margins.

While some lenders will simply escrow your prepayment and apply payments as they were scheduled (thumbing their nose at your early payoff efforts), others will go so far as to assess a penalty for prepaying the principal.

So before you start making bi-weekly payments, be sure to check with your mortgage company to make sure your principal prepayments will be applied as you make them, free of any prepayment penalties.

How to Double Your Bi-weekly Payment Savings

As you will discover when using the biweekly mortgage payment calculator, making 1/2 of your payment every two weeks can save thousands of dollars in interest costs and shave years off of the repayment term.

However, once you've paid your mortgage off ahead of schedule, if you simply spend the money you were paying on your mortgage, you could lose thousands of dollars in lost interest earnings.

So, since you were already accustomed to making mortgage payments, why not continue to make those payments -- but into an investment that will actually pay you interest instead of having to pay interest to others.

If you did that you might just double the bi-weekly payment savings by the time the mortgage was originally scheduled to be paid off.

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
