Using a Payment Calculator to Determine Your Monthly Mortgage Payment

The Payment Calculator helps you budget for your future. It is very helpful in planning and calculating future payments and budgeting for them. Enter your income information and select the various categories of income used in the calculation of payment using the drop down lists. When you are done with your choice of income categories, just click on the calculate button. The Payment Calculator will determine the monthly payment sum or loan term for an unsecured loan or a variable rate loan.

Use the “Payment” drop down lists to calculate the amount of monthly payment you can afford for a loan. You may also want to compare the amount of monthly payment that you have estimated for your current loan and your future plans. Use the drop down list under “future payments” to calculate your future monthly payment amounts.

If you are planning to buy a house, use the Mortgage calculator to check your potential mortgage payments. Enter your annual salary and the amortization table shows you how much you can afford to spend every month. The amortization calculator determines your amortization schedule based on the current interest rates and it shows you how long it will take for you to reach the monthly payment amounts you have calculated. Some variables used in the amortization schedule are the loan term, interest rate, loan amounts, points, closing costs and property tax. You can change some variables to change the amortization schedule and calculate different monthly payments. The Payment Calculator also helps you to plan and budget for future expenses such as buying groceries, utility bills, and insurance.

You can use the calculator to finalize your calculations on the mortgage loan you have calculated in the Payment Calculator. Enter your calculations in the fields provided and press the buttons to finish. The result is the amortization schedule, you need to finalize. Use this to address your lender’s if you are not satisfied with the figures you got from the mortgage calculator.

To determine the amount of loan you can apply for, you can use the Loan Estimator in the Payment Calculator. Enter your initial loan amount and the calculator will show you the maximum and minimum payments you can make each month towards the interest rate. For the interest rate, you can choose from the Fixed-rate, Adjustable-rate or Mortgage Interest Rate. After you enter all these figures, the calculator will show you the result of your APR.

The final step is to compare the results of your APR with those of your financial adviser and your bank. You can use the Payment Calculator to make comparisons. If you find that your financial advisor is charging you a higher interest rate or has a higher loan term, you may want to consider changing your advisor and choosing a bank with a lower APR. On the other hand, if you find that your loan terms are too short, your best option is to shorten your loan term. When using the Payment Calculator to determine your monthly mortgage payment, be sure to compare the results of different calculators.
