Mortgage or Home Loan Calculator
As a buyer of real estate, you are most like to pay the property
through a loan secured from a bank or other financial institution.
One of the first things to consider is knowing how much you are
willing and actually capable of spending to pay for the property.
The Mortage Calculator shown below is a handy tool that can help you
determine the monthly dues (amortization) depending on the parameters
that you enter:
- Selling Price of the Property :
This is most likely the contract price of the home or real estate property.
Please enter the amount in Peso.
- Percent Down Payment :
The standard is 20%, but you might want to try a bigger value. A bigger down payment
means you get a lower loan amount, and therefore saving on interest payments.
- Length of Mortage :
How many years do you want to pay the loan. Do you want to carry on a debt up to 25 years?
Can you lower it to 3, 5 or 7 years? A shorter loan term means you save on
interest payments, but it could also take a toll on your budget. A long term loan
to pay it lightly, but in the long run it is also much more expensive.
- Interest Rate Per Annum :
You have to check this one with the financial institution
where you want to avail your loan. Different banks have different interest rates.
In general, the going rate for
most banks in the Philippines is 11% per annum. Real estate developers may also offer
In-House Financing at higher rates from 18% to 21% per annum.
After filling up the form fields with the right values, you are now ready to see the results. Simply click
on the "Show Computation" Button and that's it. You will see the following results:
