15 vs. 30 Yr Mortgages
Determining which mortgage term is right for you can be a challenge. With a 15 year mortgage you will pay significantly less interest, but only if you can afford the higher monthly payment. Use this calculator to compare these two mortgage terms, and let us help you decide which term is better for you.
- Mortgage amount
- Original or expected balance for your mortgage.
- Interest rate
- Annual interest rate for your mortgage. Interest rates are generally lower for shorter term mortgages.
- Marginal tax rate
- This is your combined state and federal tax rate. This is used to calculate your potential income tax savings by deducting your mortgage interest.
- Monthly payment
- Monthly principal and interest payment (PI). Both 30 year and 15 year mortgages are shown.
- Total payments
- Total of all monthly payments over the full term of the mortgage. Both 30 year and 15 year mortgages are shown.

Tax Considerations >Tax Deductions
Here is a question which is often asked about real estate sales: which home loan fees are deductible for income tax purposes? It is good to know the answer to this question before you sign on the dotted line. It may influence which loan you will choose. Loan fees for certain services are not itemized on your fee statement, but are grouped together into a single category.
The most obvious deductible fee is the loan fee paid to acquire a mortgage for a principal residence. The IRS recently ruled that the buyer could deduct the fee in the first year, even if the seller paid it! Other deductions include pro-rated property taxes and mortgage interest. On these items, the buyer may only deduct their share.
Most of the other closing costs are not deductible, but you may add them to your home's adjusted cost basis when calculating appreciation. Among these costs are appraisal, attorney, and inspection fees, as well as title, recording and notary fees. Fire insurance fees are neither deductible nor do they figure into the cost basis. If you are not sure which fees are deductible, consult a professional tax advisor.
In what real estate market are more than 90 percent of home sales cash transactions?
Palm Beach, home to princes, politicians, and CEOs, has homes from 2,000 sq.ft. condos to 56,000 sq.ft. estates.
