One of the more common questions that we have received lately is how to build mortgage calculators in excel. It’s actually fairly easy to do but it depends on how much complexity you add of course. Using the “PMT” excel function will help you but what if you want to test the mortgage payment amount depending on the frequency of your payments, on the amount you will borrow, on the rate and of course on the length of your mortgage? it’s all possible. In this spreadsheet (link below to download it for free), I used nested if statements in order to determine the number of periods based off of the frequency of payments and the rate to use. It is fairly easy to go through, here is an image:

All numbers in the lighter color are those that you must enter:

-House Price
-Down payment
-Mortgage time length
-Fixed Rate
-Payment frequency (since we used “if” conditions, the frequency must be entered as described on the right)

Depending on the frequency, I will determine the number of periods. Why? Because if you pay every month, you will not be charged interest on the capital that you paid back the following week. That is why it makes such a big difference to pay a mortgage bi-weekly compared with monthly (that and the fact that you actually have more payments because of the 30 or 31 days per month!).

Mortgage qualification

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask
if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

I became enthusiastic about goji about 8 years ago when his daughter, then 8 years old, was diagnosed with
Type 1 all forms of diabetes and a teacher suggested that a fruitaceutical beverage containing goji would be
good for the woman. Garrigus researched goji
just so that you can fend him off, but while doing thus he became assured himself in the
fruit’s healthful properties and began planting 4 acres of the bushy
trees from seed imported from China.
