The rate of interest may be the biggest factor you consider when you determine the terms of your loan. Using a mortgage payment or amortization calculator is good way to figure out how a certain interest rate is going to act on a loan.
For instance, if you have $150,000 loan with a 30 year term at a 9% interest, but rates are currently at 7%, a mortgage calculator can show you the difference between your loan now and what it would be if you were to refinance. In this case a 2% drop in interest rates could take you from paying $284,496 in total interest to paying $209,263. This drop in interest rates would ultimately save you 75,233, which equals up to $209 a
month. A mortgage calculator shows that refinancing to a lower rate is well worth it.
Loans generally come with one of two types of interest rates, fixed or adjustable. Fixed rates have a locked in rate, so that you will be able to know exactly what your monthly payments will be through out the life of the loan. This provides security and enables you to do financial planning with confidence. Adjustable rates are less predictable. Based on certain indexes, adjustable rates fluctuate with the market, rising or falling as time goes by. This type of rate has more of a risk, but also has the possibility of saving you money if rates were to drop. Dropping rates would not affect a fixed rate and often causing borrowers with fixed rates to consider refinancing.
