How much will my interest-only payment be?

This calculator estimates your monthly mortgage payment for an interest-only loan. An interest-only loan is a loan in which the borrower pays only interest payments and doesn't pay off any of the loan balance at the beginning of the loan. After the interest-only period, payments are increased to repay the principal fully in the remaining time. The longer the interest-only period lasts, the sharper the monthly payment will jump once the interest-only period ends.

Monthly payments are shown both during and after the initial, interest-only period. This calculator also shows the components of the payment: principal and interest, taxes and insurance, and mortgage insurance when your down payment is less than 20% of the value of the home.

The interest-only loan used in this calculator is assumed to have a fixed rate.

Credit card ratings: Editors from CardRatings.com rate credit cards objectively based on the features the credit card offers consumers, the fees and interest rates, and how a credit card compares with other cards in its category. Ratings vary by category, and the same card may receive a certain number of stars in one category and a higher or lower number in another.

The ratings are the expert opinion of the editors from CardRatings.com, and not influenced by any remuneration their website may receive from card issuers.
