Mortgage Capital cuts 15-year home loans to just 2.875%, no points or fees

Blue house on tax bill

Mortgage Capital Associates has one of the best deals we’ve seen so far this year on 15-year home loans, and it’s available in 31 states and the District of Columbia.

The interest rate is only 2.875% -- or more than a quarter of a point lower than the average 15-year mortgage currently costs.

That’s also much less than the 3.5% Mortgage Capital was charging for these kinds of home loans last summer.

Plus, there are no points or no lender fees to pay.

Shorter-term mortgages like these are popular with homeowners who are refinancing.

The monthly payments are higher than with a longer loan. For this loan, principal and interest would be $685 a month for each $100,000 borrowed.

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

It will also provide a month-by-month amortization schedule that shows how much you've reduced your debt and how much you still owe if you want to pay off the loan.

By paying off their homes more quickly with a 15-year loan, borrowers can save tens of thousands of dollars in total interest.
