Refinance Calculator Help
Use this refinance calculator to help you decide if refinancing makes sense for you. In general, if you can lower your monthly mortgage payment and offset the costs of refinancing in a reasonable time frame, you should consider refinancing. This refinance calculator estimates the monthly mortgage payment, break-even point, and projected lifetime savings of the loan based on the value of your current loan amount and the projected refinance amount of your new loan. Sample values are entered in the calculator fields, but you can adjust them to fit your situation. The advanced report also provides an amortization schedule that shows how your payments will be applied to the loan's principal and interest.

The mortgage payment calculator includes estimated property taxes. The value represents an annual tax on homeowners' property and the tax amount is based on the home's value.
Commonly known as hazard insurance, most lenders require insurance to provide damage protection for your home and personal property from a variety of events, including fire, lightning, burglary, vandalism, storms, explosions, and more. All homeowner's insurance policies contain personal liability coverage, which protects against lawsuits involving injuries that occur on and off your property.
Mortgage insurance is required primarily for borrowers with a down payment of less than 20% of the home's purchase price. It protects lenders against some or most of the losses that can occur when a borrower defaults on a mortgage loan. Also known as PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance).
Typically, owners of condos or townhomes are required to pay homeowners association dues (known as HOA fees), to cover common amenities or services within the property such as garbage collection, landscaping, snow removal, pool maintenance, and hazard insurance.
