Well, it depends on the size of the loan. I did some calculations on various size loans. And as of the rates a couple years ago, you could about count on paying double your principle on a 30 year amortization excluding any PMI. I can't remember if that included property tax or not, I don't think it did. Either way, it's good enough for a rule of thumb. Borrow 100K for 30 years, pay 200K total. So yeah, that's as good of a case for paying extra principle if there ever was one. And the hell of it is that interest rates are low!
