## Savings Calculator — calculate future value

This calculator easily answers the question “If I save “X” amount for “Y” months what will the value be at the end?”

The user enters the “Periodic Savings Amount” (amount saved or invested every month); the “Number of Months” and the “Annual Interest Rate” or the annual rate of return one expects to earn on their investments.

The calculator quickly creates a savings schedule and a set of charts that will help the user see the relationship between the amount invested and the return on the investment. The schedule can be copied and pasted to Excel, if desired.

The investment term is always expressed in months.

- 60 months = 5 years
- 120 months = 10 years
- 180 months = 15 years
- 240 months = 20 years
- 360 months = 30 years

If you need a more advanced “Savings Calculator” – one that lets the user solve for the starting amount, the amount to invest, the interest rate, the term required to reach a goal or the future value; or if you would like to easily print the schedule; or if you need to pick a different investment frequency, then you may want to try the calculator located here: **https://AccurateCalculators.com/savings-calculator**

*Loan Calculator Help…*Using the calculator is straight forward. User enters a “loan amount”, “number of months”, “annual interest rate”. The calculator calculates the number of monthly payments.

The “Payment Method” determines when the first payment is due. With the default selection, “End-of-Period”, the first payment will be due one month after the loan is made. If “Start-of-Period” is selected, then the first payment will be due on the loan date.

The term (duration) of the loan is expressed as a number of months.

- 60 months = 5 years
- 120 months = 10 years
- 180 months = 15 years
- 240 months = 20 years
- 360 months = 30 years

## Auto Loan Calculator Help

Use this calculator to calculate loan details when the down payment is expressed as an amount.

Unlike a general loan calculator, this calculator allows for two unknown values. In addition to solving for the monthly payment amount, it will also calculate the “Car Price”, the “Down Payment Amount” or the “Loan Amount”. Just enter a “0” (zero) for one of the three values and provide the other two.

Note that the calculator calculates what percentage the down payment is of the price of the car. This is handy when a lender requires a borrower to provide a minimum percentage cash deposit.

The term (duration) of the loan is expressed as a number of months.

- 60 months = 5 years
- 120 months = 10 years
- 180 months = 15 years
- 240 months = 20 years
- 360 months = 30 years

If you need the ability to print the amortization schedule, or more flexibility such as selecting different payment or compounding frequencies or the ability to calculate term or interest rate, please see the auto loan calculator here: **https://AccurateCalculators.com/auto-loan-calculator**

## Mortgages

## Mortgage Calculator Help

You can calculate the mortgage loan amount from the price of the real estate by providing the down payment percentage.

If you know the mortgage amount you can afford and the cash down payment percentage required, you can calculate the affordable real estate price.

Or if you know the price of the real estate and the loan amout and enter “0” for the down payment percentage, the calculator will calculate the down payment amount and percentage.

Points, Annual Property Taxes, Annual Insurance and Private Mortgage Ins. (PMI) are all optional. If you enter values, the periodic portion of each will be calculated and shown on the schedule. Property taxes and insurance are combined under escrow.

If a borrower does not have cash to cover at least 20% of the purchase price, some lenders will require the borrower to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI) to cover against a possible default. Premiums are typically 0.5% to 2.0% of the original loan amount. The borrower can drop the insurance coverage once the mortgage balance is less than 80% of the original purchase price. The calculator handles this automatically. (There may be other conditions as well under which the lender will no longer require PMI. One such case might be apprciation of the real estate.)

Points are charges that are normally due at closing. Borrowers (normally only in USA) may select to pay a lender “points” up front in exchange for a lower interest rate. Points are expressed in percent and are calculated on the amount borrowed. 3 points on a $200,000 mortgage equals $6,000. If the user enters points, this calculator includes their value in the summary and as part of the total payment at loan origination on the payment schedule.

The term (duration) of the loan is expressed as a number of months.

- 60 months = 5 years
- 120 months = 10 years
- 180 months = 15 years
- 240 months = 20 years
- 360 months = 30 years
