Mortgage Calculator 

Once you’ve made the decision to buy a new home, the buying process begins with estimating how much you can afford to spend. Use our mortgage and purchase process guide below to learn more.

Why use a mortgage payment calculator?

When planning to buy a home, it's easy to focus on the headline figures, like the final purchase price or your overall mortgage amount. But in many way, the most relevant number for your mortgage will be your regular repayments. After all, your mortgage payments are the amount that you'll need to take from your pay cheque each month to keep your mortgage under control.

Using a mortgage payment calculator like the one above takes the guess work out of your mortgage payments. Our calculator lets you understand how much you'll need to pay each month for any size of mortgage, with any rate. This means you can compare homes and mortgage products with confidence, all the while knowing exactly how much you'll be on the hook for in each scenario.


How to use the mortgage payment calculator

To use the calculator, start by entering the purchase price, then select an amortization period and mortgage rate. The calculator shows the best rates available in your province, but you can also add a different rate. The calculator will now show you what your mortgage payments will be.

By default, the mortgage payment calculator will show four different monthly payments, depending on the size of your down payment. It will automatically calculate the cost of CMHC insurance. You can change the size of your down payment and the payment frequency to see how your regular payment will be affected

Our calculator also shows you what the land transfer tax will be, and approximately how much cash you’ll need for closing costs. You can also use the calculator to estimate your total monthly expenses, see what your payments would be if mortgage rates go up, and show what your outstanding balance will be over time.

If you’re buying a new home, it’s a good idea to use the calculator to determine what you can afford before you start looking at real estate listings. If you’re renewing or refinancing and know the total amount of the mortgage, use the “Renewal or Refinance” tab to estimate mortgage payments without accounting for a down payment.
