Caught the Error

I've made a rather large error regarding mortgage prepayments.

It turns out that I have incorrectly lumped both mortgages together as having the same due dates. They do not. There is a 8 month difference even though in my mind, a mortgage is a mortgage.

My goal is not to renew either one when their term expires meaning they will be paid for in a total of 5 yrs vs. 12 yrs respectively. I didn't mean for one to end sooner than the term.

What that means is that the prepayments I've calculated for the ski condo are too high. After adjusting them, I see that there is potential for savings after all and our cash flow increases significantly.

It is really nice to have some breathing room.


  1. I love it when I find errors like that. It's like found money. So fun. :)
