Common Mortgage Questions

Explanation of Mortgage Terms

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.

Mortgage Calculator Uses

Using an online mortgage calculator can help you quickly and accurately predict your monthly mortgage payment with just a few pieces of information. It can also show you the total amount of interest you’ll pay over the life of your mortgage.

Understand Your Mortgage Payment

A monthly mortgage payment is made up of many different costs. Our mortgage calculator’s payment breakdown can show you exactly where your estimated payment will go: principal and interest (P&I), homeowner’s insurance, property taxes, and private mortgage insurance (PMI).

Compare Different Mortgage Types

Don’t know which mortgage is right for you? Use our mortgage calculator to estimate the cost of different loan types and compare interest paid for a 15-year mortgage and a 30-year mortgage. You may be surprised to see how much you can save in interest by getting a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage.

Calculate Your Down Payment

Considering what to offer on a home? Change the home price in the loan calculator to see if going under or above the asking price still fits within your budget.

You can also use our mortgage payment calculator to see the impact of making a higher down payment. A higher down payment will lower your monthly payments not only because it reduces the amount of money you borrow, but also because it can help you qualify for a lower interest rate. In some cases, a down payment of at least 20% of the home’s purchase price can help you avoid paying private mortgage insurance (PMI).
