This begs some questions:

How long's the term of fixed interest?

What's the rate? If it's above 4.5%, it's no better than a 15-year fixed
rate mortgage.

Is there a balloon payment required at the end?

Is the rate fixed for a term, and adjustable after that?

Are there fees associated with paying "early"?

Is there a fee to set it up in the first place?

By the way, congratulations on being disciplined enough to stick to this
plan. It takes a level of dedication that most do not possess.

Absolutely. The only reason I'm still subscribed. :)
