We have provided the financial calculators below
to enable you to answer basic questions and begin to evaluate financial decisions.
This calculator will amortize your mortgage over the loan period based on your input.
Credit Card Payment Calculator
This calculator will give an approximation of the finance
charges that will accrue at a given rate of repayment of credit card debt.
Bi-Weekly Mortgage Calculator
This calculator will show you how much you will save if you make 1/2 of your
mortgage payment every two weeks instead of making a full mortgage payment
once a month. In effect, you will be making one extra mortgage payment per
year - without hardly noticing the additional cash outflow. But, as you are
about to discover, you will certainly notice the increased cash flow that
will occur when you pay your mortgage off way ahead of schedule!
Car Cost Comparison
When buying a car most people fail to consider ALL of the expenses that will
be generated by their purchase. And because nearly all car buying scenarios
come with different variables (depreciation rates, interest rates, purchase
prices, insurance costs, mpg ratings, etc.), it becomes extremely difficult
to compare one buying scenario with another... until now that is. This
calculator will not only help you to forecast the REAL COST of buying and
owning a car, but it will also help you to more accurately compare the real
cost of one car buying scenario with the real cost of a second car buying scenario.
Credit Card Minimum Interest Payment Calculator
This calculator will show you how much interest you will end up paying if you make only the minimum required payment on your credit card bill. It will also tell you how many minimum payments you will make before your balance is paid off (up to a maximum of 600 payments).
Debt Investment Calculator
Lifetime Savings Calculator
This calculator will show you how much you'll
save over the course of your lifetime when permanently switching from any given high
priced buying habit (name brand) to its functional, less expensive equivalent (generic).
Plus, it will also show you how much interest you could earn if you were to invest all or
part of those savings as you realized them. As you're about to see, "a penny
saved" can REALLY ADD UP!
Buy or Lease Calculator
Leasing a car or truck, rather than buying it, can be a good option for some people. If you lease, your monthly payments will be smaller than if you financed the purchase of the vehicle. However, at the end of the lease, you have no ownership of the vehicle, and the contractual obligations of the lease can be quite binding. Use this calculator to see the cost comparison of buying versus leasing, and make the decision for yourself!
In a society that is becoming increasingly 'cashless', it also becomes more and more expensive to balance finances with a virtual checkbook. Many individuals do not utilize the simplicity of noting their income versus their expenses, in turn driving their accounts into the red. Use this calculator to pinpoint and eliminate those hidden expenses and live within your means.
