20 year home loans can be the perfect product for consumers not wishing to stretch their mortgages all the way out to 30 years and who are not 100% sure that they can afford the payments of a 15 year or 10 year mortgage. Most 20 year mortgages do not have pre-payment penalties meaning you could essentially shorten your term to 15 years by making additional principle payments each month (ask your loan consultant if there are any pre-payment penalties associated with the loans you are considering). 20 year home loans land in the middle ground between the added interest of a 30 year loan and the additional payment weight of a 15 year loan.
Another reason many people consider 20 year mortgages is because they are already years into a 30 year mortgage when they decide to refinance and they do not want to go back to the beginning stages of the amortization schedule of a 30 year loan where a huge portion of their monthly payment is dedicated to paying interest.

Tips for Shopping for a 20 Year Home Loan:
- Ask for the difference in payments between 30 year, 20 year, and 15 year loans. Then, ask about the interest saved over the life of the loan.
- Verify whether the loan has any pre-payment penalties.
- Request a Good Faith Estimate and Truth-In-Lending Statement so that you can better compare competing offers.
- Do your homework and make sure that the lenders and brokers that you are speaking with have a good record with the Better Business Bureau and are in solid standing with their regulators.
