How to calculate a house payment

If you came to this page first, you should use the calculator for how much home you can afford before you try to figure your monthly payment here.

Principal & Interest portion of payment

Y our monthly payment includes more than just the repayment on the loan! It also includes property taxes and insurance, and if your down payment was less than 20%, then it also includes private mortgage insurance. Many mortgage calculators don’t include these amounts, which makes them kind of useless. My calculator (at right) gives you a more realistic picture of your real total monthly obligation.

For the down payment, enter the largest that you’re able to afford.

To show how much the interest rate and the down payment affect the monthly payment, here are some examples of monthly payments on a $180,000 home with a 30-year mortgage:

  1. 4% interest, 20% down: $987/month
  2. 4% interest, 5% down: $1230/month
  3. 8% interest, 20% down: $1357/month
  4. 8% interest, 5% down: $1669/month

Taxes, Insurance, and Maintenance

  1. Property Tax (collected by your local government).
  2. Fire/Hazard Insurance (with insurance premiums payable to your insurance agent).
  3. Maintenance on your home.

But you don’t have to use the escrow service if you don’t want to. If you prefer to pay your taxes and insurance separately from your mortgage payment, you’re certainly welcome to do so. Just let your bank know that’s what you want to do.

Property taxes

Property tax rates vary widely from county to county It’s worth finding the actual amount on the home you want to buy, so you can better estimate your total monthly payments. Most local governments let you see the tax amount for a given property on their website, and here’s a county-by-county list of U.S. property tax rates. If you can’t find the tax for the house yourself, your lender or real estate agent can look it up for you.

Property taxes are generally paid at the end of the year, for the previous year. So in Dec. 2013 or Jan. 2014 you’ll pay taxes for 2013.

Property taxes are a little tricky at closing, and we’ll cover that when you get to the closing costs lesson. You can wait until then to learn about that.

Insurance

If you’ve never purchased insurance before, it’s not hard. Get quotes from two or three agents and compare. If you already have insurance for a car, one of your quotes should come from the same agent, since you usually get a discount by having both car and homeowners insurance with the same company. To find other agents, just do an web search for “homeowners insurance”.

    The amount of coverage. Typically, this should be the amount it would cost to replace your house if it burned to the ground. This amount is often less than you paid for your home, because you also bought the land the home is on. Naturally, you typically don’t insure the land, since it can’t burn down.

Maintenance

While maintenance is a very real expense, it’s not included in your monthly payment, so you’ll need to prepared to pay for maintenance separately. Long-term maintenance often runs around 1% of the home value per year, so on a $175,000 home, figure $1750 per year (going up each year with inflation). If that sounds like a lot, consider that every 15 years or so you’ll need to replace your roof, which will cost several thousand dollars. (You could get a metal roof which will last your lifetime, like I did, but metal roofs cost more up front.) And every several years you’ll have to have a wood home repainted, which will run a few thousand dollars. Central heat/air systems don’t last forever, either.

If you have decent savings, you don’t have to budget for maintenance. But if buying the home is going to be a stretch for you and you’re not good at saving, then try to put some money away each month in a separate account so you’ll be able to pay for maintenance as needed. A good amount is the value of your home divided by 1200. (e.g., on a $180,000 home, that would be $150/mo.)

The rest of this page shows you how to calculate the mortgage payment manually with spreadsheet software (Excel, Numbers, etc.). If this doesn’t interest you, feel free to skip to the Down Payments page.

Figuring the payments on a loan

But instead of typing the letters A, B, and C, use these figures instead:

A = Enter the interest rate of the loan. Note that the formula divides it by 12 because you want the monthly interest rate, not the yearly interest rate.

B = Enter the number of months you’ll be making mortgage payments. That’s 180 for a 15-year loan, or 360 for a 30-year loan.

C = Enter the amount of the loan. This is the price of the house, minus the down payment, plus closing costs (if you’re rolling the closing costs into the loan).

Note that the result is a negative number. Don’t worry about that. If it bothers you, put a minus sign between the = sign and “PMT”.

Here’s an example. Let’s say our home costs $140,000. We’re putting 5% down ($7,000), so we’ll only need to borrow $133,000. But we’re rolling the closing costs ($6,000) into the mortgage, which takes it back up to $139,000. Our interest rate is 8% and it’s a 30-year loan. So we’ve got:

And our answer is $1020 a month. Don’t forget that your mortgage payment also includes taxes and insurance. (See that section above.) Let’s say that taxes are $2500/year and insurance is $1100/year. That’s $3600/year together, or $300/month. So your total monthly mortgage payment is $1320 ($1020 from what we figured earlier, plus $300 for taxes and insurance.)

One more thing: If you put less than 20% down, you’ll probably have to pay for Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). PMI generally costs about 1/3700th to 1/1500th the price of the home. (On a $120,000 home, you’ll pay $32 to $80/mo. for PMI).

Mortgage Loan Dos and Don’ts

With this mortgage payoff calculator, estimate how quickly you can pay off your home. By calculating the impact of extra payments, you can learn how to save money on the total amount of interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan.

Planning to Pay Off Your Mortgage Early?

Use the “Extra payments” functionality to find out how you can shorten your loan term and save money on interest by paying extra toward your loan’s principal each month, every year, or in a one-time payment.

Understand Your Mortgage Payment

Your mortgage payment is defined as your principal and interest payment in this mortgage payoff calculator. When you pay extra on your principal balance, you reduce the amount of your loan and save money on interest.

Keep in mind that you may pay for other costs in your monthly payment, such as homeowners’ insurance, property taxes, and private mortgage insurance (PMI). For a breakdown of your mortgage payment costs, try our free mortgage calculator.

Accelerate Your Mortgage Payment Plan

Get creative and find more ways to make additional payments on your mortgage loan. Making extra payments on the principal balance of your mortgage will help you pay off your mortgage debt faster and save thousands of dollars in interest. Use our free budgeting tool, EveryDollar, to see how extra mortgage payments fit into your budget.

Calculate Different Scenarios

See how early you’ll pay off your mortgage and how much interest you’ll save.

Let’s say your remaining balance on your home is $200,000. Your current principal and interest payment is $993 every month on a 30-year fixed-rate loan. You decide to make an additional $300 payment toward principal every month to pay off your home faster. By adding $300 to your monthly payment, you’ll save just over $64,000 in interest and pay off your home over 11 years sooner.

Consider another example. You have a remaining balance of $350,000 on your current home on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. You decide to increase your monthly payment by $1,000. With that additional principal payment every month, you could pay off your home nearly 16 years faster and save almost $156,000 in interest.

Mortgage terminology can be confusing and overly complicated—but it doesn’t have to be! We’ve broken down some of the terms to help make them easier to understand.

The Payment Calculator can determine the monthly payment amount or loan term for a fixed interest loan. Use the “Fixed Term” tab to calculate the monthly payment of a fixed-term loan. Use the “Fixed Payments” tab to calculate the time to pay off a loan with a fixed monthly payment.

Monthly Payment: $1,687.71

A loan is a contract between a borrower and a lender in which the borrower receives an amount of money (principal) that they are obligated to pay back in the future. Loans can be customized based on various factors. The number of available options can be overwhelming. Two of the most common deciding factors are the term and monthly payment amount, which are separated by tabs in the calculator above.

Fixed Term

Mortgages, auto, and many other loans tend to use the time limit approach to the repayment of loans. For mortgages, in particular, choosing to have routine monthly payments between 30 years or 15 years or other terms can be a very important decision because how long a debt obligation lasts can affect a person’s long-term financial goals. Some examples include:

  • Choosing a shorter mortgage term because of the uncertainty of long-term job security or preference for a lower interest rate while there is a sizable amount in savings
  • Choosing a longer mortgage term in order to time it correctly with the release of Social Security retirement benefits, which can be used to pay off the mortgage

The Payment Calculator can help sort out the fine details of such considerations. It can also be used when deciding between financing options for a car, which can range from 12 months to 96 months periods. Even though many car buyers will be tempted to take the longest option that results in the lowest monthly payment, the shortest term typically results in the lowest total paid for the car (interest + principal). Car buyers should experiment with the variables to see which term is best accommodated by their budget and situation. For additional information about or to do calculations involving mortgages or auto loans, please visit the Mortgage Calculator or Auto Loan Calculator.

Fixed Monthly Payment Amount

This method helps determine the time required to pay off a loan and is often used to find how fast the debt on a credit card can be repaid. This calculator can also estimate how early a person who has some extra money at the end of each month can pay off their loan. Simply add the extra into the “Monthly Pay” section of the calculator.

It is possible that a calculation may result in a certain monthly payment that is not enough to repay the principal and interest on a loan. This means that interest will accrue at such a pace that repayment of the loan at the given “Monthly Pay” cannot keep up. If so, simply adjust one of the three inputs until a viable result is calculated. Either “Loan Amount” needs to be lower, “Monthly Pay” needs to be higher, or “Interest Rate” needs to be lower.

Interest Rate (APR)

When using a figure for this input, it is important to make the distinction between interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR). Especially when very large loans are involved, such as mortgages, the difference can be up to thousands of dollars. By definition, the interest rate is simply the cost of borrowing the principal loan amount. On the other hand, APR is a broader measure of the cost of a loan, which rolls in other costs such as broker fees, discount points, closing costs, and administrative fees. In other words, instead of upfront payments, these additional costs are added onto the cost of borrowing the loan and prorated over the life of the loan instead. If there are no fees associated with a loan, then the interest rate equals the APR. For more information about or to do calculations involving APR or Interest Rate, please visit the APR Calculator or Interest Rate Calculator.

Borrowers can input both interest rate and APR (if they know them) into the calculator to see the different results. Use interest rate in order to determine loan details without the addition of other costs. To find the total cost of the loan, use APR. The advertised APR generally provides more accurate loan details.

Variable vs. Fixed

When it comes to loans, there are generally two available interest options to choose from: variable (sometimes called adjustable or floating) or fixed. The majority of loans have fixed interest rates, such as conventionally amortized loans like mortgages, auto loans, or student loans. Examples of variable loans include adjustable-rate mortgages, home equity lines of credit (HELOC), and some personal and student loans. For more information about or to do calculations involving any of these other loans, please visit the Mortgage Calculator, Auto Loan Calculator, Student Loan Calculator, or Personal Loan Calculator.

Variable Rate Information

In variable rate loans, the interest rate may change based on indices such as inflation or the central bank rate (all of which are usually in movement with the economy). The most common financial index that lenders reference for variable rates is the key index rate set by the U.S. Federal Reserve or the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor).

Because rates of variable loans vary over time, fluctuations in rates will alter routine payment amounts; the rate change in one month changes the monthly payment due for that month as well as the total expected interest owed over the life of the loan. Some lenders may place caps on variable loan rates, which are maximum limits on the interest rate charged, regardless of how much the index interest rate changes. Lenders only update interest rates periodically at a frequency agreed to by the borrower, most likely disclosed in a loan contract. As a result, a change to an indexed interest rate does not necessarily mean an immediate change to a variable loan’s interest rate. Broadly speaking, variable rates are more favorable to the borrower when indexed interest rates are trending downward.

Credit card rates can be fixed or variable. Credit card issuers aren’t required to give advanced notice of an interest rate increase for credit cards with variable interest rates. It is possible for borrowers with excellent credit to request more favorable rates on their variable loans or credit cards. For more information or to perform calculations that involve paying off a credit card, use the Credit Card Calculator or use the Credit Cards Payoff Calculator for paying off multiple credit cards.

Paying off your mortgage is one of the most important things that you need to do. The fact is that making a commitment to repay your mortgage in 10, 20 or 30 years, is a good choice. But, what if you could cut down that time considerably? Perhaps you could even knock years off of your loan by just making one extra payment per year.

How does one payment matter?

Making an extra payment to your mortgage is something that you should consider because it can save you thousands of dollars. The fact is that just one payment can make a considerably difference in the total that you pay for your home and what’s more, it can shave years off of that mortgage. Take a look at the following example. You can use a mortgage calculator to help you to find out this information specific to your current loan.

If you currently have a $200,000 mortgage loan and you have secured an interest rate at 6.5 percent, your monthly payment is likely to be $1264 dollars per month if your loan term is 30 years. This is a considerable payment and you may not realize that the real facts of what you will be paying on the home you are purchasing. It will cost you far more than $200,000.

Original mortgage amount: $200,000
Interest rate: 6.5 percent
Term: 30 years
Monthly payment: $1264
Total interest paid on your loan: $255,088.98
How much you will really pay in full at the end of your term: $455,088.98

This information is provided to you on your amortization statement which is what you will see at the time of closing the sale on your home. Your lender must provide this for you before you sign your paperwork, so it should not be too much of a surprise to you as to how much you will pay for your home when interest is factored into the cost. If you are still unsure, use a mortgage calculator to help you to see what these numbers are for your particular situation.

What will likely be a shock to you is just how much you can save if in fact you add that additional payment to your loan. If you add just another payment per year of $1264 as in the example above, you could save yourself quite a bit of money. Here’s how this breaks down for you.

Original mortgage amount: $200,000
Interest rate: 6.5 percent
Term: 30 years
Monthly payment: $1264
Additional payment per year of: $1264
Total interest paid: $199,098.92
Total cost of your loan when paid in full: $399,098.92
Pay off date of the loan is reduced by: 6 years!

In this example, you see that you have not just cut into the amount of interest that you are saving by an outstanding savings of nearly $56,000 but you also have cut out the time that you will be repaying your loan down to just 24 years instead of the full 30 years. That savings can be figured out for your specific loan by using a mortgage calculator. You simply need to calculate what an additional payment per year will do to your loan.

Where can you get an extra payment?

While for some, it should not be too much of a strain to get an extra payment for your mortgage together, this is quite different for those that live paycheck to paycheck or that have their budget fully aligned without much room. For these individuals, $1264 is a lot of money to put into a loan that you technically do not have to. Yet, you may be able to do so without realizing that you are.

Most people get paid every two weeks. This amounts to being paid 26 times per year. Yet, you only have to make 12 payments, one per month on your mortgage. If half of each of your paychecks goes to your mortgage, you still have only 24 mortgage based payments, leaving two extra paychecks per year that do not apply to your mortgage. Because of this, you likely have an additional month’s mortgage payment without realizing it.

Two times per year, you are going to have three paychecks per month. Those extra paychecks can easily be used to apply to your mortgage so that you do not feel that pain. In fact, many mortgage companies will allow you to set up and use a bi monthly payment schedule that will withdraw half of your monthly payment every two weeks. You never really notice nor feel in your budget that you have made that additional payment. Do make sure that your lender allows you to apply this additional amount paid to your principle not just your interest for this time frame.

There are many reasons why you should take into consideration doing just this. First, you are investing your money into your home and saving yourself thousands of dollars. What’s more, if you do need to borrow from your home’s equity at some point, this extra money is available to you, socked away where you can keep it saving you money.

Take the time to use a mortgage calculator to see just how much money you can save by investing one extra payment per year into your home. For those that have a higher interest rate than the example listed, the savings are even more. Increase your payment every two weeks slightly more and save even more. Taking charge of your mortgage is the first step. Use a mortgage calculator to help you to determine what is needed for you to do this.

You may be wondering: What will my mortgage payment be? The answer is found within a common acronym used to calculate mortgage payments: PITI, which stands for:

  • Principal
  • Interest
  • Taxes
  • Insurance

When you’re using a home loan calculator to determine whether you can afford a mortgage, remember to factor in the principal and interest amount you’ll owe every month, plus your estimated property taxes and homeowners insurance premiums. Your taxes and insurance are typically paid annually in a lump sum from your escrow account, but these amounts are divided by 12 and added to your monthly mortgage payment amount.

If you put down less than 20% toward your home purchase, your monthly payment will also include mortgage insurance payments.

How our home loan calculator works

Our home loan calculator helps you estimate your monthly mortgage payment amount and the total cost of your loan.

Input your home’s purchase price, loan term (15 or 30 years), expected down payment and loan start date to get a basic idea of what your monthly payment would look like.

For a more accurate estimate, click the “Advanced Options” section to input your annual home insurance premium, interest rate, property taxes and, if applicable, your monthly homeowners association fees.

Once you’ve filled out each field, the home loan calculator provides the following outputs:

  • Your monthly payment amount
  • Total loan amount
  • Total interest paid
  • Total of all payments over the life of the loan

To the right of this information, you’re provided with a visual breakdown of how each dollar of your monthly payment is applied — what goes to principal and interest, taxes, insurance, HOA fees and mortgage insurance, if applicable.

There’s also a section for extra payments. If you scroll down to “Strategies to reach your payoff faster,” you can put in a monthly, biweekly or weekly amount to pay on top of your monthly payment. The calculator tells you how these extra payments would accelerate your loan payoff and how much you’d save in interest payments.

The “Cash Bombs” section is for lump sum amounts you want to pay at a later date toward your mortgage from a bonus, inheritance or other windfall. The calculator shows you how those payments can speed up your payoff timeline and save you money.

Home Loan FAQs

How does a mortgage work?
A mortgage is a loan you borrow to finance the purchase of a home. Your home serves as collateral for the loan, and your lender charges you interest in exchange for providing the funds. You repay the loan and interest owed over an agreed-upon term. If you fail to repay the loan, your lender can repossess your home through the foreclosure process and sell it to recoup their investment.

What credit score do I need to get a mortgage?
You may qualify to get a mortgage with a credit score as low as 500, though your options will be more limited. Generally speaking, the better your credit score, the lower your mortgage rate and down payment requirements will be. Learn more about the credit score needed to buy a house.

What is a down payment?
A down payment is a homebuyer’s upfront investment in the home purchase. It’s the difference between the home price and the mortgage amount and is typically expressed as a percentage.

Can I get a mortgage with no money down?
If you live in a designated rural area or you’re a U.S. military service member or veteran, you might qualify for a mortgage with no money down. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs insures VA loans, which cater to members of the military, veterans and their spouses, with no down payment required. The U.S. Department of Agriculture backs USDA loans for eligible homebuyers in rural areas and require a 0% down payment.

What is a debt-to-income ratio and why does it matter when you get a mortgage?
Your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is the percentage of your gross monthly income that is used to make monthly debt payments — for example, your auto and student loans, credit cards and mortgage. The goal is to keep your DTI ratio at or below 43% when applying for a mortgage. The less debt you’re managing with your income, the less risky you are to mortgage lenders.

How much money can I borrow with a home loan?
The answer to this question is based on your income, existing debt and other factors. A home affordability calculator can help you determine how much house you can afford.

What is a mortgage preapproval?
A mortgage preapproval provides you with the estimated loan amount and interest rate you conditionally qualify for based on a review of your overall financial and credit profile. Your lender will consider your credit history, assets, liabilities, income and other details to evaluate your ability to repay a mortgage.

What types of home loans are there?
Some common mortgage types include:

What is mortgage insurance?
Mortgage insurance protects your lender if you default on your mortgage. Homebuyers who put down less than 20% are required to pay mortgage insurance as part of their monthly mortgage payment. Conventional loans have private mortgage insurance, while loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA, have mortgage insurance premiums that are paid upfront and annually.

Should I make biweekly mortgage payments?
Some lenders allow you to split your payment in half and pay it every two weeks, known as biweekly payments. A major perk of paying your mortgage this way is you squeeze in an extra payment each year — you make 26 half payments, which equals 13 full payments. That extra payment annually can shave a few years off of your amortization schedule.

Use this loan calculator to determine your monthly payment, interest rate, number of months or principal amount on a loan. Find your ideal payment by changing loan amount, interest rate and term and seeing the effect on payment amount.

You can also create and print a loan amortization schedule to see how your monthly payment will pay-off the loan principal plus interest over the course of the loan.

Loan Amount The original principal on a new loan or principal remaining on an existing loan. Interest Rate The annual nominal interest rate, or stated rate of the loan. Number of Months The number of payments required to repay the loan. Monthly Payment The amount to be paid toward the loan at each monthly payment due date. Compounding This calculator assumes interest compounding occurs monthly as with payments. For additional compounding options use our Advanced Loan Calculator.

Loan Calculations

When you take out a loan, you must pay back the loan plus interest by making regular payments to the bank. So you can think of a loan as an annuity you pay to a lending institution. For loan calculations we can use the formula for the Present Value of an Ordinary Annuity:

  • PV is the loan amount
  • PMT is the monthly payment
  • i is the interest rate per month in decimal form (interest rate percentage divided by 12)
  • n is the number of months (term of the loan in months)

Calculation Options

Find the Loan Amount

To calculate the loan amount we use the loan equation formula in original form:

Example: Your bank offers a loan at an annual interest rate of 6% and you are willing to pay $250 per month for 4 years (48 months). How much of a loan can to take?

Solve using CalculatorSoup Loan Calculator

Calculation: Find the Loan Amount
Interest Rate: % 6
Number of Months: 48
Monthly Payment: $ 250

Solve using the formula:

PMT = 250
n = 48
i = 0.06/12 = 0.005

Solve on a TI BA II Plus

Be sure P/Y is set to 12 for monthly payments (12 payments per year and monthly compounding).
Press the [2nd] key and the [FV] key to clear the TVM worksheet

  1. Input -250 and press the [PMT] key
    (the 250 payment will be negative cash flow for you)
  2. Input 48 and press the [N] key
  3. Input 6 and press the [I/Y] key
  4. Press the [CPT] key and the [PV] key

The answer is: PV = 10,645.08, the loan amount you can get, positive cash flow for you now.

Find the Number of Months

To find the number of months we solve the equation for n:

Find the Monthly Payment

To find the monthly payment we solve the equation for PMT:

Find the Interest Rate

Finding the interest rate is a complex calculation involving the Newton-Raphson Method which you can read about at MathWorld.

As you set out on your home search, it is important to know the following:

  • What kind of home you want and can afford
  • How much your monthly payments will be
  • How much you need to save for a down payment

View affordability from two perspectives:

  • Your overall monthly payments which included household expenses, mortgage payment, home insurance, property taxes, auto loans and any other financial considerations
  • How lenders determine what you can afford. Just like lenders, our Affordability Calculator looks at your Debt-to-Income Ratio (DTI) to determine what home price you can afford.
