Calculating mortgage payments is a crucial step for anyone looking to purchase a home. Our Excel Mortgage Payment Calculator simplifies this process, providing a quick and accurate estimate of your monthly payments.

### Formula

To determine the monthly mortgage payment, the calculator uses the formula for calculating a fixed-rate mortgage payment:

�=�⋅�⋅(1+�)�(1+�)�−1*M*=(1+*r*)*n*−1*P*⋅*r*⋅(1+*r*)*n*

Where:

- �
*M*is the monthly payment, - �
*P*is the loan amount, - �
*r*is the monthly interest rate (annual rate divided by 12), and - �
*n*is the total number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

### How to Use
