Multi-unit investment

I plan to invest in a multi-family apartment and I can put down at least 50% for a down payment. I only need $100k from a lender and I would like to know if a 15 year or 30 year mortgage is better? I own a home that is fully paid and I don’t have any debt. by oster152 from Alston, Georgia. Nov 5th 2021 Reply

Only you can answer that for yourself. The major considerations here are that obviously the shorter term loan will save you a ton of money interest - buy the payments are higher. The longer term loan will have smaller payments, and you'll pay a lot more in interest. Most people pick the longer-term and pay the higher interest because of the lower payment. I personally think a 30-yr loan is a huge mistake. Even getting a 25 or 20-year is a monster in savings, and doesn't increase the payment as high as a 15-year.
