Roosevelt Savings Bank of Garden City, N.Y., is the latest lender to offer mortgages with payments every two weeks rather than once a month.

The biweekly mortgage is an old idea that has been regaining popularity recently. The basic appeal is that the mortgage is paid off more quickly since it involves the equivalent of 13 monthly payments a year rather than 12.
