Mortgage calculator help

Zillow's mortgage calculator helps determine your total monthly mortgage payment, inclusive of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance. The payment amount is based on the value of the home, with the calculator setting default values for property taxes, home insurance, mortgage insurance (PMI), and other details. You are able to adjust these details to reflect your situation and get a more accurate monthly payment estimate. The monthly payment calculator also provides a mortgage amortization schedule that shows the money you will pay toward your principal and interest over the course of the home loan.
