How To Use The Mortgage Loan Calculator
We have done our best to make this calculator as simple and user-friendly as possible, but if you aren’t sure where to start, try following these steps:
- Use the slider to enter your mortgage amount, or alternatively just type it into the box. If you aren’t sure yet how much you will borrow, just enter your best guess.
- Use the drop-down list or the slider to input your term; this is the number of years you intend to take to repay your loan.
- Use the slider or the box to input your interest rate. If you don’t know this yet, leave the original figure as this is representative of the current market average.
- Your monthly payment will now be displayed in the top blue bar and under the interest rate box based on the information provided.
- If you are coming in well under budget, you can click Prepayments to add an additional amount that you will pay every month, year, or even just one time. This will reduce the total amount repaid as you can see in the graph below the Prepayments section.
- Click View Report to see a detailed breakdown of your loan including total amount to be repaid over the term, and a payment schedule comparing your regular payments with those augmented by prepayments (where applicable).
