How to calculate home equity loan payment?


Home equity loan payment is usually the same throughout the lifetime of the loan. Home equity loans are fixed rate rather than adjustable rate and payments won't fluctuate. To calculate your payments, simply divide the amount you borrow plus the interest by the number of months you will be holding the loan.

If you are taking a home equity line of credit (HELOC) you will be able to draw and repay as much as you want until the limit is exhausted. After the draw period is over, the HELOC has to be repaid with a balloon payment or refinanced. During the draw period, only the interest on the drawn amount needs to be repaid on a monthly basis. If you repay more towards the principal, you will be able to borrow these funds again.

Online Calculators to Compute Home Equity Loan Payment

There are useful tools to assist you in calculating your home equity loan payment. However, when loan shopping, do not use online calculators as a sole basis for your decision. Home equity loans may have additional charges, especially HELOCs. You'd better compare all terms and applicable fees, together with the monthly home equity loan payment before taking a decision.
