About a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. In addition to making monthly mortgage payments, if someone pays towards the principal, will they save on interest? If yes, does that mean once the principal amount has been paid off, there is no more interest? Also, will the monthly payments (the due amount) change as they pay more towards the principal?
