Calculate your mortgage payment

For a large portion of the population, buying a home means working with a mortgage lender to secure a mortgage. It can be difficult to determine how much you can afford and what you are paying.

You can use a mortgage calculator to estimate your monthly mortgage payment based on factors such as your interest rate, purchase price and down payment.

To calculate your monthly mortgage payment, here is what you will need:

  • house price
  • Deposit amount
  • Interest rate
  • term of the loan
  • Taxes, insurance and all HOA fees

What you can afford depends on a number of factors, including your income, debt, debt-to-equity ratio, down payment, and credit score.

You should also factor in closing costs, property taxes, insurance costs, and ongoing maintenance costs.

The type of loan you choose can also affect how much home you can afford. When shopping for a loan, consider whether a conventional mortgage, FHA loan, VA loan, or USDA loan is best suited for your particular situation.

Explain the annual percentage rate of charge

The APR, or annual percentage rate, is the overall cost of your loan. It includes interest and finance charges for your loan, taking into account interest, fees and time.

The APR is important because it can help you understand the total cost of your home loan if you decide to keep it for the full term.
