# Basic Monthly Mortgage Payment Calculator

Basic Monthly Mortgage Payment Calculator is used to calculate a basic monthly mortgage payment. To calculate monthly mortgage payments you will need to know some information, these are:

- The loan amount (the total amount you are borrowing)
- The interest rate on the loan
- The term of the loan (how many years you will be paying the mortgage)

**Once you have this information, you can use an online mortgage calculator or the following formula:**

**M = P[r(1+r)^n]/[(1+r)^n-1]**

Where:

- M = monthly mortgage payment
- P = the principal loan amount
- r = the monthly interest rate
- n = the total number of payments.

Note: Here the annual interest rate is divided by 12 and the number of years of the loan is multiplied by 12.

It’s important to note that this formula is a simplified version of the calculation and doesn’t take into account other factors like taxes, insurance, or PMI (private mortgage insurance) that may also affect the monthly mortgage payment. It is always best to consult a financial advisor or mortgage professional for a more accurate estimate.
