This mortgage calculator helps you estimate your monthly payments based on loan amount, interest rate, and term.

Mortgage Calculator













How to Use the Mortgage Calculator

Enter the details of your mortgage into the respective fields. The loan amount, annual interest rate, and loan term are required fields for the mortgage calculation. Additionally, you can include estimated annual property taxes, home insurance, and monthly HOA (Homeowner Association) fees to get a more comprehensive monthly payment estimate. Once you have entered the values, click on the “Calculate” button to see your estimated monthly mortgage payment.

How It Works

The calculator uses the standard mortgage calculation formula to determine the monthly payment based on the loan amount, interest rate, and loan term. The formula used is:

M = P[r(1+r)^n/((1+r)^n)-1)], where:

  • M is the total monthly mortgage payment.
  • P is the loan amount (principal).
  • r is the monthly interest rate (annual rate divided by 12).
  • n is the number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

Additional amounts for monthly property taxes, home insurance, and HOA fees are then added to this base mortgage payment to give a total monthly payment.

Limitations

The calculator provides an estimate only and does not account for other potential costs or fees that may arise during the term of the loan. It assumes the interest rate remains constant over the entire term, which may not be the case with adjustable-rate mortgages. Always consult with a financial advisor for a thorough analysis.
