Managing finances when it comes to mortgages is crucial. Our Thorough Mortgage Calculator is designed to simplify the process of calculating your monthly mortgage payments. Whether you are a prospective homebuyer or looking to refinance, this calculator provides accurate results to help you plan your budget effectively.

Formula: The mortgage calculation formula used in this calculator is the standard formula for calculating the monthly payment of a fixed-rate mortgage:

�=�⋅�⋅(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 (annual rate divided by 12), and
• n is the total number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

2. Input the annual interest rate in the “Interest Rate” field.

Example: Suppose you have a loan amount of \$200,000, an interest rate of 4.5%, and a loan term of 30 years. After clicking “Calculate,” the monthly mortgage payment will be displayed.
