# Mortgage Compare Calculator

Are you planning to take out a mortgage and wondering how much your monthly payments will be? Our Mortgage Compare Calculator is the perfect tool to help you estimate your monthly mortgage payments based on the loan amount, interest rate, and loan term.

Formula: The calculator uses the standard formula for calculating monthly mortgage payments:

�=�⋅�⋅(1+�)�(1+�)�−1M=(1+r)n−1Pr⋅(1+r)n

Where:

• M is the monthly payment,
• P is the loan amount,
• r is the monthly interest rate, and
• n is the total number of payments (loan term in months).

How to Use:

1. Enter the loan amount you are considering.
2. Input the annual interest rate as a percentage.
3. Specify the loan term in years.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to get your estimated monthly mortgage payment.

Example: Suppose you are looking to borrow \$200,000 with an annual interest rate of 4.5% and a loan term of 30 years. After entering these values and clicking “Calculate,” the Mortgage Compare Calculator will display your estimated monthly payment.
