I just bought a home and put $20,000 down but had to take a mortgage for the remaining 170,000 of the purchase price. My bank offered a standard 30 year mtg. with 5.5% nominal interest rate. I figure my monthly mortgage payment will be around $965.24.

Now suppose I decide not to do the 30 year mortgage. If I can get a 15 yr. $170,000 loan at a nominal interest rate of 5.5%, I figure that my monthly payment needs to increase in the amount of 423.80?

How much more interest would I pay if I took our a 30 year mortgage instead of of a 15 year mortgage? $97,459.33?
