Mortgage Calculator

Basic Instructions

Whether you’re buying a new home or refinancing, our mortgage calculator can do the math for you. Simply enter the amount, term and interest rate to get your monthly payment amount. If you’re refinancing, enter the current balance on your mortgage into the loan amount section and input the new term and new rate that you’ll receive. Then click on the amortization table to see how much interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan. Add extra payments to find out how they can put your payoff schedule on the fast-track and save you thousands.

Keep in mind that this calculator only calculates the mortgage payment. It does not include taxes, insurance or other fees included in the purchase of your home.

Loan term – The length of time you have to pay off your loan (30 and 15 year fixed-rate loans are common terms).

Amortization table – Timetable detailing each monthly payment of a mortgage. Details include the payment, principal paid, interest paid, total interest paid and current balance for each payment period.

Monthly extra payment – Extra amount added to each monthly payment to reduce loan length and interest paid.
