# New Construction Mortgage Calculator

Planning for a new construction project involves various financial considerations, and one crucial aspect is determining the mortgage payments. Our New Construction Mortgage Calculator simplifies this process, providing accurate estimates to help you plan your budget effectively.

Formula: The calculator uses the following formula to calculate the monthly mortgage payment:

�=�⋅�⋅(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 rate divided by 12).
• n is the total number of payments (loan term in months).

How to Use:
