This mortgage payment calculator will put money in your pocket when you get the big picture.
Some potential home buyers don't understand their minimums and maximums. What is the minimum and maximum you can afford to pay? What does that mean? A tax write off will be higher with a maximum, but do you really need a tax write off? Or, would you prefer to stick with a minimum payment, so you can easily afford your home loan, and go on vacation yearly? Also, consider other bills you may have now or in the future.
