You can use this mortgage payoff calculator to estimate how much money you might be able to save, and the number of months that are shaved off the length of your loan, by paying more on your monthly mortgage payment than your regularly scheduled amount. This payoff calculator only requires four inputs: the initial mortgage amount, the annual interest rate charged on the loan, the length of the loan, the remaining principal on the mortgage, and the additional payment you wish to make each month.
The variables used in our online calculator are defined in detail below, including how to interpret the results.
This is the original amount of the home loan, also referred to as the loan's principal.
This is the annual interest rate on the mortgage. This is not the APR, which takes into account other costs associated with the mortgage.

This is the remaining principal on the mortgage. This amount can be found on your most recent statement. If you are using this calculator for a new loan, then just enter the same amount as the Initial Mortgage Amount.

This is the current monthly payment due on the mortgage.
