Mortgage Calculators Estimate Your Payment
How much do I need to put down?
A down payment of 20% or more helps you get a lower interest rate and avoid paying private mortgage insurance. But you may not need that much. These loans have lower down payment options for home buyers:
What's included in my payment?
- Principal – the amount that was loaned to you by the mortgage lender
- Interest – the fee you’re paying the bank for lending you the money
- Escrow – monthly allowance for property taxes and homeowner’s insurance
What determines my interest rate?
- Credit score
- Debt-to-income ratio
- Type of loan
- The amount of your mortgage
- Where you live
- Current events
- The house you buy
Use this tool as a springboard to helping you estimate your monthly mortgage payment and understand what it includes. Your next step after playing with the numbers: get preapproved by a lender. Applying for a mortgage will give you a more definitive idea of how much house you can afford after a lender has vetted your employment, income, credit and finances. You’ll also have a clearer idea of how much money you’ll need to bring to the closing table.
