"Hi, I am Ethan Ewing, president of, today I want to talk to you about the mortgage payment calculator. Mortgage calculators are extremely popular these days, we get about 5 million people a month online searching for the term mortgage calculator, so in we provided a few great mortgage calculators, we just put in a new one out you will see it on the home page of Some important things you have to remember when you are looking to calculate the savings of a new mortgage versus an old mortgage. What you really need, is just a few things, you need obviously, to know your current mortgage payment is, what is your current interest rate is and what the current term and loan balance are for your existing mortgage. Then you’ll compare that with the terms of the new loan, and the most important thing there of course is same thing your new mortgage payment, your new mortgage interest rate, your new mortgage loan balance, and your new mortgage term, how may years you are going to be paying it off.

Once you get and have all those items in, you are going to use the calculator, it will spit you out great results and tell you exactly what your monthly savings are for each month, and then you will be able to determine is it worthwhile for you to refinance or not, are those monthly savings big enough to go through the process of refinance. In most cases, if it is $100 or 150 bucks plus, probably a pretty good idea to go through refinance process, rates are great right now. Thanks a lot, hope that helps and we’ll see you next time."
