1. 1. Excel Mortgage Payment Formula Microsoft Office Training Excel Training
2. 2. The task at hand… <ul><li>In Excel it is possible to calculate monthly repayments on a mortgage by using the PMT function. </li></ul>
3. 3. The PMT function has the following arguments: <ul><li>Rate – this is interest rate on the mortgage loan divided by 12 </li></ul>
4. 4. The PMT function has the following arguments: <ul><li>Nper – this is the term of the mortgage or the number of monthly repayments you will make. For example with a 25 year mortgage you would make 12 multipled by 25 monthly repayments. </li></ul>
5. 5. The PMT function has the following arguments: <ul><li>PV (present value) - is the mortgage amount – the amount you have borrowed, expressed as a negative value. </li></ul>
6. 6. The PMT function has the following arguments: <ul><li>FV - you can leave blank. FV stands for future value. As the future of the loan when it has be repaid will be zero and zero is the default for this argument it can be left empty. </li></ul>
7. 7. The PMT function has the following arguments: <ul><li>Type – here you state whether you will make the payment at the beginning or at the end of each month, type 1 if at the beginning or 0 if at the end. Sorry no option for halfway through the month. </li></ul>
8. 8. Our Example <ul><li>An example. John takes out a £250,000 mortgage over 25 years with an annual interest rate of 4.5%. He will make his mortgage payment on the 1st of each month. </li></ul><ul><li>Rate would be 4.5%/12 </li></ul><ul><li>Nper would be 25*12 </li></ul><ul><li>PV would be -250000 </li></ul><ul><li>Type would be 1 </li></ul>
9. 9. Our Example <ul><li>To practice this example in Excel, in a blank spreadsheet enter the following data starting in A1. </li></ul><ul><li>i) Rate goes in A1, 4.5% goes in B1 and so on for each row. </li></ul><ul><li>Rate 4.5% </li></ul><ul><li>Term 25 </li></ul><ul><li>Mortgage 250000 </li></ul><ul><li>Repayment </li></ul>
10. 10. Our Example <ul><li>To practice this example in Excel, in a blank spreadsheet enter the following data starting in A1. </li></ul><ul><li>i) Rate goes in A1, 4.5% goes in B1 and so on for each row. </li></ul><ul><li>Rate 4.5% </li></ul><ul><li>Term 25 </li></ul><ul><li>Mortgage 250000 </li></ul><ul><li>Repayment </li></ul>

13. 13. Our Example <ul><li>iv) Click OK Your answer should be 1384.39 </li></ul>
