is there a name for the month when the mortgage payment goes from more interest than principal reduction to more principal reduction than interest (i'm thinking "breakeven month" but that doesnt sound right for the scenario).

for example
i = 7%
n = 25 years
principal = 200k

http://www.amortization-calc.com/#loan-200000-25-7-1-2013-2
according to this amort table in the link above, on 2/2028, the mortgage payment becomes more principal reduction than interest payment.

Well if there is no name, I think we should try to come up with one.

Tried uploading chart based on the example in your OP - but couldn't seem to do it.

The "breakeven" point (for lack of a better term) occurs at month 182 (out of 300)
