What will my mortgage payment be? – calculate your rates

It's the question that seems to follow every first-time homebuyer: "What will my mortgage payment be?" Your mortgage payment is the sum of principal and interest payments due each month. Some also call this your PITI payment (Principal, Interest, Taxes, Insurance). Several factors determine your mortgage payment, and we'll explain them in this guide.

How do I calculate a monthly mortgage payment?

Before beginning to determine your monthly mortgage payment, you first need to learn how to calculate it. Calculating your monthly mortgage payments is a useful way to estimate how much you'll be paying over the course of any given loan.

To calculate your monthly interest-only mortgage payment, multiply the interest rate by the loan's principal amount and divide the result by twelve (12).

However, calculating mortgage payments for other mortgages is a more complicated process that requires a thorough understanding of interest calculations, amortisation, and compounding.

You'll need to know what type of interest rate you're dealing with: fixed or adjustable. You'll also need to know how long you're borrowing the money and whether there are any fees associated with the loan.

The good news is that Wis Mortgages has removed the need for you to calculate mortgage rates manually. We have developed free mortgage calculators to aid people in estimating the payments they would make if they took out a new mortgage. Enter your loan amount, interest rate, and term, and determine how much money you'll be forking over each month.

What will my mortgage payment be?

The answer to the question "what will my mortgage payment be?" will vary depending on many factors, including:

The amount of the down payment

If you put down less than 20 percent on your home loan, you'll likely have to pay private mortgage insurance (PMI). This is an additional fee that is tacked onto your monthly payment.

The length of your loan term

Mortgage payments are higher when you finance the property for longer. If you take out a 30-year mortgage, you'll pay more per month than if you took out a 15-year mortgage. However, over the length of the loan, you'll be paying less per month with a 30-year loan and more per month with a 15-year loan.

Your credit score and credit history

Lenders use credit scores, which are based on the individual's payment history, to determine interest rates, the term of the loan, and monthly payments for the borrower. The lower your credit score, the higher the interest rate and the higher your monthly payments will be.

Your interest rates

When you take out a loan, you'll usually have to pay interest in addition to the total amount you borrow. The more interest you pay, the higher your monthly payments will be.

The amount you are borrowing

This is the total amount of money you're borrowing from your lender. The more you borrow, the higher your monthly mortgage payments will be.

How can I cut my mortgage payments?

If you're worried about keeping up with your mortgage payments, don't forget that there are several ways to mitigate the cost of your monthly payment.

Overpay on your mortgage repayments

Most mortgages allow you to pay a little more than the monthly minimum if you have any extra cash. This can help you pay off the loan early and save thousands in interest.

Increase the period for paying back the loan

Think about increasing the repayment period instead of repaying the loan over 10 or 20 years. This will mean that each month's payment is lower, giving you greater flexibility in your budget.

Switch to an interest-only deal

If your lender offers an interest-only deal, switch over to this option. However, keep in mind that this means that you won't be making any progress towards paying off the principal balance of your loan, which could leave you with a large balloon payment at the end of the term.

Enrol in automatic bill pay

Most mortgage companies allow customers to enrol in automatic bill pay. This means that your payments are made each month automatically, so you don't have to worry about missing them or incurring late fees due to not having enough funds in your account on time each month.

Make a large down payment

If you have a lot of equity in your home, you will typically pay less per month since you'll be borrowing less money. One of the advantages of making a large initial deposit is receiving a lower annual interest rate. The interest rate that lenders charge depends heavily on how risky they think it is to lend money to someone.

Get rid of your PMI

This is one of those fees that many people forget about when they first get their mortgage. If your initial down payment on a mortgage is less than 20 percent, you will pay private mortgage insurance (PMI). This fee will be included in your monthly payments but will not continue once you have a minimum of 20 percent equity in your home.

Refinance your existing loan

Many lenders are willing to refinance their loans after a certain period. You may need to pay a fee to do this, but it will likely reduce your overall interest costs and save you money in the long run.
