## Use this amortization calculator to get an estimate of cost savings and more.

This amortization extra payment calculator estimates how much you could potentially save on interest and how quickly you may be able to pay off your mortgage loan based on the information you provide. It also makes some assumptions about mortgage insurance and other costs, which can be significant. Use this calculator to help you determine whether you should consider paying extra on your mortgage payment.

## What is an amortization schedule?

Amortization is the process of gradually repaying your loan by making regular monthly payments of principal and interest. With a fixed-rate loan, your monthly principal and interest payment stays consistent, or the same amount, over the term of the loan. But, over time, more of your payment goes towards the principal balance, while the monthly cost or payment of interest decreases. An amortization schedule shows how much money you pay in principal and interest. It also shows total interest over the term of your loan.

## What is the effect of paying extra principal on your mortgage?

Depending on your financial situation, paying extra principal on your mortgage can be a great option to reduce interest expense and pay off the loan more quickly. Use this amortization calculator to help you determine how many months it could take to pay off your loan with or without making extra payments.

Conforming fixed-rate estimated monthly payment and APR example: A \$464,000 loan amount with a 30-year term at an interest rate of 6.500% with a down payment of 25% and no discount points purchased would result in an estimated monthly principal and interest payment of \$2,933 over the full term of the loan with an annual percentage rate (APR) of 6.667%.1

Amortization extra payment example: Paying an extra \$200 a month on a \$464,000 fixed-rate loan with a 30-year term at an interest rate of 6.500% and a down payment of 25% could save you \$115,843 in interest over the full term of the loan and you could pay off your loan in 301 months vs. 360 months.

Estimated monthly payment and APR calculation are based on a down payment of 25% and borrower-paid finance charges of 0.862% of the base loan amount. If the down payment is less than 20%, mortgage insurance may be required, which could increase the monthly payment and the APR. Estimated monthly payment does not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums and the actual payment obligation will be greater.
