Master of your own destiny

normal calculatorDo you tire of having to go to BlueGill, Key Bank of America Fargo or some sleezy real estate broker’s site to figure out what your mortgage is going to cost you monthly?  Good news!  For people using Windows 7, the built in calculator includes ta-da, a mortgage calculator feature!

Fill in 4 of the known fields, and it will provide you with the 5th.  The default is monthly payment, but if you needed to know how much you could afford, select the Purchase Price option, and work backwards to see what range you should be looking in.

To access this handy tool, from your Start menu choose:

  • All programs
  • Accessories
  • Calculator
  • View
  • Worksheets (at the bottom of the drop down dialog box)
  • Mortgage
  • Voila!
