## Mortgage Payment Calculator Help

Calculate the monthly payments for a mortgage loan. Enter your sale price, any down payment you're making, the interest rate and the term of the loan. This calculator will then show you the monthly principal and interest payment, the total amount of interest you will pay and the total amount of money you will spend over the life of the loan. You can also enter the points and other closing costs and roll those into your loan. You can even enter an additional payment amount you intend to pay each month to work down your principal and the calculator will show you the anticipated payoff time. You can display and/or print the amortization schedule for your loan.
