About the Redesign

If you visited this site prior to September 15th, 2018, you've no doubt noticed that I've since launched a complete redesign of the website.

If you're not happy with the new design, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred to keep the old desktop design, but considering the majority of my site's users are now accessing the site from small-screen, touch-enabled, mobile devices, and considering Google is now penalizing websites for not being mobile/thumb friendly, I was left with no choice but to switch to a responsive, mobile-first design.

The good news is that now that I have combined the three separate versions of the site (mobile, desktop, and ad-free member) into a single design, this will free up a ton of my time for working to make the mobile-optimized calculators more desktop/laptop friendly. In fact, some of the redesigned calculators already offer a desktop-optimized form that becomes visible when you increase the width setting of the calculator (within the "Calculator Preferences" expandable panel).

Thank you in advance for your help and patience as I work to improve the redesign.

Monthly payment column:

This column displays the payment, number of months remaining, total interest cost, and estimated payoff if you continue making 12 monthly payments per year. The monthly payment is calculated based on the original mortgage amount, the annual interest rate, the original term, and the number of payments already made, and therefore does not include escrowed taxes or insurance.

Biweekly payment column:

This column displays the payment, number of months remaining, total interest cost, and estimated payoff if you start making 1/2 of your monthly mortgage payment every two weeks. These 26 biweekly payments equate to 13 monthly payments per year instead of just 12. The biweekly payment is calculated by dividing the monthly payment by 2.

Weekly payment column:

This column displays the payment (including any extra amount you entered), number of months remaining, total interest cost, and estimated payoff if you start making the equivalent of 14 payments per year by dividing the total of 14 monthly payments by 52 weeks (plus any extra amount you entered).

Savings column:
