Use this mortgage calculator to determine your monthly payments and total cost of your home loan in Missouri.

## How to Use the Mortgage Calculator

## How the Calculator Works

The calculator uses a standard formula to determine the monthly payment for a fixed-rate mortgage:

PMT = P * (r(1+r)^n) / ((1+r)^n - 1)

Where:

**PMT**is your monthly 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)

## Limitations of the Calculator

Please be aware that actual mortgage rates may include more factors and fees, such as closing costs, origination fees, insurance, and taxes, which this calculator does not take into account.

This calculator assumes a fixed interest rate throughout the entire loan term. Rates can vary due to changes in market conditions or your personal credit score.

Use this calculator as a general guide, and consult with a financial advisor or lender for precise payment details.
