Definitions/terms used in the calculator

When you select this calculation type, you must enter the Down Payment percentage also. The loan amount and the down payment amount will be calculated automatically. The loan amount will be calculated as the purchase price minus the down payment. Select 'Loan Amount based' when you know exactly how much you want to borrow from a bank without taking a down payment into account.
Purchase Price The purchase price of your home.
Loan Amount The amount of money you want to lend from a bank or another financial institution to purchase the home. This is the mortgage loan.
Down Payment The amount of you money you want to pay upfront when the mortgage begins. You have to fill it in as a percentage of the Purchase Price. When you have a Down Payment percentage smaller than 20%, you probably have to pay PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance).
