Calculating Mortgage Payments

For much of the population, buying a home means working with a mortgage lender to get a mortgage. It can be tricky to figure out how much you can afford and what you’re paying for.

To estimate your monthly mortgage payment, you can use a mortgage calculator. It will provide you with an estimate of your monthly principal and interest payment based on your interest rate, down payment, purchase price and other factors.

To calculate your monthly mortgage payment, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Interest rate
  • Down payment amount
  • Home price
  • Loan term
  • Taxes
  • Insurance
  • HOA fees

Saving Up for a House

You may know you have to save enough for a down payment, but it takes more money than that to get through the homebuying process. Plus, after you buy, you have to furnish your new home and keep up with potential repairs.

Here are six things to prepare for when saving up for a house:

  • Down payment
  • Inspection and appraisal
  • Closing costs
  • Ongoing costs
  • Home furnishings
  • Repairs and renovations

Why APR Is Important

Annual percentage rate, or APR, takes into account interest, fees and time. It’s the total cost of your loan and includes both the loan’s interest rate and its finance charges.

Since APR includes both the interest rate and certain fees associated with a home loan, APR can help you understand the total cost of a mortgage if you keep it for the entire term. The APR will usually be higher than the interest rate, but there are exceptions.
