Are you considering getting a mortgage? It can be intimidating or overwhelming to consult with a lender if you’re unsure how much of a mortgage you can afford.
Yet, nowadays, many great tools can help you determine how solid your financial situation is before you even connect with a potential lender. That’s why taking advantage of Northwood Mortgage’s online calculators is essential.
1. Mortgage qualifier calculator
The purpose of a mortgage qualifier calculator is to help you determine if you can qualify for a mortgage on the Ontario property you want.
To use the calculator effectively, you’ll need to provide a variety of information about the property you’re interested in, including how much the asking price is and either what your income is or how much of a down payment you can provide.
2. Mortgage payment calculator
A mortgage payment calculator can help you determine what your mortgage costs will look like under various circumstances. You can change the following information in a mortgage payment calculator to see how it would impact your mortgage payments:
- Total loan amount.
- Interest rate.
- Amortization period.
You can also use a mortgage payment calculator to help you develop a plan to pay your mortgage off faster.
3. Ontario land transfer tax calculator
The Ontario land transfer tax is another cost you must factor in when buying a property. You may be eligible for a rebate on your land transfer tax if you’re a first-time homebuyer.
The only information you need to calculate your estimated land transfer tax is the purchase price of the home you’re buying. Remember, if you’re buying a home in Toronto, you’re looking at an additional transfer tax.
