We sure do, in fact we have calculators for all major loan types. Just click here: Brisbane Mortgage Calculators.
Melissa Wright and the Zest team use these same calculators ourselves, as a loan (or mortgage) repayment calculator will help you work out your repayment options with various loan amounts, interest rates, terms and other factors. The Zest Mortgage Solutions calculator is perfect for both new Brisbane home buyers or if you're looking to understand your current mortgage repayments better. The loan repayment calculator is also ideal for understanding the impact of paying off a lump sum or switching lenders and rates. However, you need to be careful here as each lender has different terms around their loans.
When using the mortgage repayment calculator, we recommend starting with the default settings and then looking at the difference between paying weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Your interest will not change much with the repayment schedule, but it's an excellent way to understand how your loan fits into your current lifestyle and budget, be it weekly or monthly. This calculator is just the tip of the iceberg, so if you need help, please don't hesitate to contact Mel Wright and the friendly Zest team today!
At Zest Mortgage Solutions, we believe buying a home, be it your first or fifth, should be simple and stress-free.
