Because the recurring costs perpetuate throughout the lives of mortgages (exception being PMI), they are a significant financial factor. Property Taxes, Home Insurance, HOA Fee, and Other Costs increase with time as a byproduct of moderate inflation. There are optional inputs within the calculator for annual percentage increases. Using these wisely can result in more accurate calculations.
The most common way to repay a mortgage loan is to make monthly, fixed payments to the lender. The payment contains both the principal and the interest. For a typical 30-year loan, the majority of the payments in the first few years cover the interest.
Front-end debt ratio is also known as the mortgage-to-income ratio, computed by dividing total monthly housing costs by monthly gross income. For our calculator, only conventional and FHA loans utilize it. The monthly housing costs not only includes interest and principal on the loan, but other costs associated with housing like insurance, property taxes, and HOA/Co-Op Fee.
Back-end debt ratio is the more all-encompassing picture of a household's ability to serve home loans. It includes everything in the front-end ratio dealing with housing costs, along with any accrued recurring monthly debt like car loans, student loans, and credit cards. This ratio is commonly defined as the well-known debt-to-income ratio, and is used for all the calculations.
Many REALTORS®, real estate brokers & home builders leverage calculators to add functionality to their websites, helping buyers and sellers get their first impression in the loan process.
Most loan calculators deal with residential mortgages, here is a commercial loan calculator to use for commercial or agricultural loans.
FHA loans are mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration, the largest mortgage insurers in the world. The FHA was established in 1934 after The Great Depression and its continuing mission is to create more homeowners in the US. Therefore, it is plain obvious that the popularity of FHA loans comes from their ability to extend mortgage loans to almost anyone trying to buy a home. It is important to remember that the FHA doesn't lend money, but insures lenders instead.
