# My Mortgage Calculator

Introduction: Welcome to My Mortgage Calculator, a user-friendly tool to help you estimate your monthly mortgage payments. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or looking to refinance, this calculator provides a quick and accurate snapshot of what your monthly financial commitment might be.

Formula: To calculate the monthly mortgage payment, our calculator uses the standard formula for a fixed-rate mortgage:

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

where:

• M is the monthly mortgage payment.
• P is the loan amount.
• r is the monthly interest rate (annual interest rate divided by 12 and converted to a decimal).
• n is the total number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

How to Use:

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

Example: For instance, if you are considering a \$300,000 loan with a 4% annual interest rate for a 30-year term, you can input these values and click “Calculate” to find out your monthly payment.
