Mortgage and Loan Calculator


Monthly mortgage payments are a very important consideration for a potential home buyer. This plugin provides an in-depth report on Monthly Mortgage payments. The plugin or widget can be used by a visitor to generate a monthly report including amortization tables. Supported functionality includes being able to send a copy of the report to the visitor’s email address.

A combination of interest rates and the loan amount can be used to calculate monthly loan payments. The values can be amended at any time without needing to reload the page between each use, making it optimal for the visitor looking at several options.

  • An “Extra Payments” tab allows the visitor the freedom to really explore their options and how their loan will affect them in the long run.
  • The “Send Report to Email” functionality can be used to give visitors a way to make easy comparisons as they work to find the right mortgage for their needs.
  • Reports are generated through use of the “Calculate” command and only takes a handful of seconds to produce informative results.
