# Mortgage Recasting Calculator

Introduction: Our Mortgage Recasting Calculator provides a quick and straightforward way to determine your recasted monthly mortgage payment. Whether you’ve made extra payments towards your mortgage or considering a lump sum payment, this tool helps you understand the impact on your monthly expenses.

Formula: To calculate the recasted monthly payment, we use the standard formula for a fixed-rate mortgage:

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

where:

• M is the recasted monthly mortgage payment.
• P is the current loan principal.
• r is the monthly interest rate (annual interest rate divided by 12 and converted to a decimal).
• n is the remaining loan term in months.

How to Use:

1. Enter the current loan principal.
2. Input the annual interest rate.
3. Specify the remaining loan term in months.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to get your recasted monthly payment.

Example: Suppose you have a current loan principal of \$250,000, an annual interest rate of 3.5%, and a remaining loan term of 180 months. After entering these values into the calculator and clicking “Calculate,” you would see your estimated recasted monthly payment.
