House sitting on stack of money, considering a 15-year home loan

The Mortgage Concierge is offering one of April’s best deals on a 15-year home loan.

It’s charging borrowers in four states just 2.75%, with no points, no origination fee and a 30-day rate lock for purchase or refinance.

That’s more than a third of a percentage point below the current average cost of a 15-year home loan — 3.09%, according to our latest survey of major lenders.

And compared to a 30-year home loan, it’s more than a full percentage point below the average cost of 3.83% with 0.17 points.

This deal is available in Connecticut, Florida, Indiana and Ohio.

Shorter-term loans like this one are particularly popular with borrowers who want to save tens of thousands of dollars in interest by paying off their loans more quickly.

The biggest drawback to short-term loans is that the monthly payments are higher. For this loan, the principal and interest payment would be $679 a month for every $100,000 borrowed, or $1,357 on a $200,000 loan.

You can use our mortgage calculator to determine the monthly payments for the amount you want to borrow with this or any home loan.
