Open Term Mortgage

An open-term mortgage lets you make payments ahead of schedule without paying a penalty, so it’s a good choice if you think you will be able to pay your mortgage off early, or are looking to sell your home.

For example, if you expect to receive some cash soon – through an inheritance, a bonus, the sale of your home, or other means – an open-term mortgage may be the right fit. However, if you prefer to make regular payments over the long term, you’ll probably save more money and have more peace of mind with a fixed-term mortgage as you will likely have a lower interest rate.
