Should I pay extra on student loans each month or put that money towards a downpayment for a house?I have approximately $70,000 of student loans after graduate school. Most of the loans have a 6.8% interest rate (a couple have 7.9% and one has 5.6%). My monthly payments are about $900 minimum for the loans. My fiance and I are currently also paying for a wedding. I have approximately $500 extra every month to go towards either paying off my loans faster OR towards saving for a down payment for a house. We are not quiet sure what makes most sense at this time. Any feedback would be great!May 08 2014 - Bridgewater00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
