# Calculating Mortgage Repayments on Excel

Calculating Mortgage Repayments on Excel

• ### sole trader exceeded the vat threshold

Can any one tell me if it is possible to calculate payments for a repayment mortgage on Excel. And if so what the formula is or if there is a standard function.

Excel does have PMT function
Hello,

Exel does have the formula you are lloking for and it is:

=PMT(rate,nper,pv,fv,type)

Where rate is the rate, nper is number of periods, pv is the amount of mortgage/loan FV and type are optional.

Example:
Mortgage Amount: £100,000
Number of years: 20 = 240 months
Rate per year: 6.25 == 6.25%/12 [ per month ]
Mortgage Type: Repayment i.e. interest calculated daily

Using the formula you get:

=PMT(6.25%/12,240,100000) = £730.93

You can use cell references instead of hard wired numbers like I have done here.

You need to modify and adapt this to cater for different ways to charge interest. If you a specific example then tell us so that we can calculate for you.

Hope this helps.

repayment mortgage
would u be able to tell me how to solve this problem in excel??

From its pick at the end of 2007, house prices in London have dropped around 15% until now. Believing that this downward trend is about to be reversed, Tom Herbert, a single 26 year-old trying to get on “the property ladder” has identified a 1-bedroom flat he could buy for £200,000. Tom contacted a number of financial institutions and was offered the following mortgage options:
• repayment fixed rate for 2-years of 2.94%. After that period, the rate reverts to the bank’s standard variable rate, which currently is 5%;
• repayment fixed rate for 5-years of 3.45%. After that period, the rate reverts to the bank’s standard variable rate, which currently is 5%;
• interest only mortgage at 4% for the life of the loan. In this instance, you would be required to create an investment fund, which pays an interest rate of 2.5% to cover the repayment of the mortgage.
Assuming a 25-year mortgage period, please advise Tom on which option he should pursue, including an assessment of whether that advise would change if interest rates went up or down by up to three percentage points.
