Biweekly Mortgage Calculator – Save on Interest

This tool helps you estimate your biweekly mortgage payments.

How to Use the Biweekly Mortgage Calculator

To use this calculator, enter the loan amount, annual interest rate, and loan term in years. Optionally, you can also enter any additional biweekly payments you plan to make. Once all fields are filled in, click on the “Calculate” button to see your estimated biweekly mortgage payments.

How It Calculates the Results

This calculator uses the following formula to estimate your biweekly payment:

  • First, it calculates the monthly interest rate by dividing the annual interest rate by 12 and then by 100 to convert it to a decimal.
  • It then calculates the total number of payments by multiplying the loan term in years by 26 (because there are 26 biweekly periods in a year).
  • Using these values, it calculates the biweekly mortgage payment using an amortization formula.
  • If there is an additional biweekly payment, it adds this to the calculated biweekly payment.

Finally, the result is displayed in the result field.

Limitations of the Calculator

This calculator provides an estimate based on the entered values and may not reflect the exact payment you will make. It does not account for taxes, insurance, or other potential fees associated with the mortgage. Please consult your financial advisor for more detailed and personalized information.
