How to calculate your mortgage

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Calculate with confidence


Calculating a mortgage can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be with the help of experienced real estate agent Riz Jadavji of Royal LePage Wolle Realty in Kitchener, Ontario.

To better understand your mortgage there are a few terms and numbers you’ll want to familiarize yourself with. These are: the actual loan or mortgage borrowing amount, the annual interest rate, the mortgage amortization period (in years) and your mortgage term (in years).

In Canada, all mortgages are compounded semi-annually as required by law. If you’re quoted an interest rate of six per cent, your effective annual rate will be 6.09 per cent based on three per cent semi-annually. Considering your mortgage payments usually occur on a monthly basis, a monthly rate must be calculated based on an annual rate and in this case your monthly compounded rate works out to just under six per cent (5.926 per cent to be precise).

The length of your mortgage amortization period can affect how much interest you pay and the shorter the term the more likely it is for you to pay less in interest. Likewise, a mortgage loan with a smaller mortgage term (an example would be a period of 10 years as opposed to 15 years) and higher monthly payments can save you thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars over the long term. If you can afford to make higher monthly payments and can handle a shorter mortgage term, it’s something worth considering as the savings can be considerable.

Riz Jadavji of Royal LePage Wolle Realty in Kitchener has more than 10 years experience serving the Kitchener-Waterloo area and helping customers find their dream homes. He will work with you and your family to get top dollar for your property when selling and receive the best bang for your buck when buying. He’s even designed a nifty mortgage calculator to make it easier for you to understand the financials of your investment.
