Jacob - Here is a breakdown on the two loan scenarios $ 330,000 at 4.5 % over 15 years your monthly payment would be $ 2,524.48 and the second scenarion $ 330,000 at 5.25% over 30 years your monthly payment would be $1,822.27 - You asked me what would be the better loan ? Well if you can afford the larger payment of $2,524.48 over 15 years you would be paying less interest and I do not know of many people who like to pay interest so I would have to say that wouuld be the better loan if you are able to make those payments comfortably.I hope this helps some Jeffrey Martino Young Essex Mortgage Bank 1-866-936-8478.
