One more mortgage secret

Great episode, but I think you may have missed one option: take the 30 year fixed instead of the 15 year fixed BUT set up up either biweekly payments instead of monthly if possible, extra annual payment, or add extra principle payments on top of the monthly payments if you can’t do biweekly. This helps build equity similar to the wealth builder loans BUT gives you payment flexibility if your financial situation changes, e.g. two income household drops to one income due to health circumstances or loss of job, etc. :-)
