Join us on the seventy-seventh episode of the prosperity podcast as best selling author Kim Butler and co-host Todd Strobel investigate fifteen year versus thirty year mortgages. Conventional wisdom seems to be based off of bank’s best interest and marketing tactics, so the Prosperity Podcast breaks down the best ways to analyze different mortgages so that you can make the financial decision that’s right for you.
For more information on different types of mortgages, take a look at Kim Butler’s book Busting the Financial Planning Lies or drop by truthconcepts.com for their visual breakdown of the differences.
