Use our mortgage calculator to estimate the amount of a fixed-rate mortgage loan. It can estimate payoff schedules on an annual and a monthly amortization level, based on the starting date of the loan. The mortgage loan is secured by property, for example, a house or an apartment. It includes some of the following key components:
The amount that you will end up borrowing from your bank or your private lender. Usually corresponds to your income and the determined affordability of your loan.
The length of time you choose to pay off your loan. Depending on the amount of your loan, your down payment, and your income, the loan terms vary from 5-30 years. The shorter the loan, the lower the interest rate.
Can vary — from ``fixed`` interest rates (FRMs) to “variable” interest rates (ARMs). In the case of the ARMs, the interest rate tends to be fixed for a period of time, then adjusts to market indexes.
A portion of your loan paid upfront. Generally required to be apx. 20% of total property price. If less than 20%, Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) should be purchased, and banks require higher interest rates.
