Mortgage Calculator FAQs
1. Does this calculator tell me if I’m approved for a mortgage or not?
No. This calculator simply lets you see different monthly payment amounts, interest accrued, taxes, and more based on the inputs you provide. To find out if you qualify for a mortgage, see our Mortgage Marketplace where we’ve partnered with Zillow.
2. Where can I find mortgage interest rates?
Check our Mortgage Marketplace brought to you in partnership with Zillow to find current rates on mortgages.
3. What down payment amount should I enter?
Typically, you’ll need to put down approximately 5 to 20 percent of the total cost as a down payment. However, that depends on the type of mortgage as some types do not require you to put any money down. See our post on “How to Get a Mortgage for the First Time” as well as “7 Programs to Consider If You Have a Small Down Payment” for more information.
