At the end of April, our remaining balance is at 39.91% of our original mortgage that we took out in 2007. That’s a reduction of 1.15%.
How much longer?
Once all of April’s payments are applied, we’ll have reduced our mortgage balance by about $1558 this month. That means we’ve broken through the $55k barrier. Currently, with the new monthly figures in place, we’ve still got 23 payments left! That means our last mortgage payment would be applied on April 1, 2019.
This month we had some extra expenses which ended up adding an extra month to our payment schedule.My wife is going on a mission trip in June and final payments were due this month. Luckily, about $150 will get us back on track and remove that extra month’s payment. In addition, with the phone issues we had, we purchased a new Motorola G5 Plus for $229. At this point, we can certainly catch up on the mortgage payments, and hopefully cut a bit extra off. All that’s necessary is some extra work through the side business or some other unexpected income.
