Adjustable rate mortgages can provide attractive interest rates, but your payment is not fixed. This calculator helps you to determine what your adjustable mortgage payments may be.
- Mortgage amount
- Original or expected balance for your mortgage.
- Starting interest rate
- Initial annual interest rate for this mortgage.
- Term in years
- The number of years over which you will repay this loan. The most common mortgage terms are 15 years and 30 years.
- Interest rate cap
- This is the highest interest rate allowed by your mortgage. Your actual interest rate will not be adjusted above this rate.
- Expected adjustment
- The amount you believe that your mortgage's interest rate will change. This amount will be added to or subtracted from your interest rate.
- Months between adjustments
- The number of payment periods between potential adjustments to your interest rate. The most common is 12 months, which means your payment could change at most once per year.
- Starting monthly payment
- Monthly principal and interest payment (PI) based on your beginning balance and starting interest rate.
- Total payments
- Total of all monthly payments over the full term of the mortgage. This total payment amount assumes that there are no prepayments of principal.
- Total interest
