Our home loan amortization calculator can show you how long it may take for you to pay off your loan and the principal-and-interest breakdown of your monthly payments. Please note that calculations are based on a fixed-rate, fully-amortizing loan.

What is loan amortization?
Amortization is the elimination of a loan’s principal balance with periodic payments. Simply put, it's the process of paying down a loan over time.
How does amortization work?
If you make a monthly mortgage payment, part of that payment covers interest and part pays down your principal. Generally, during the early years of your loan term, most of your monthly payment goes toward paying interest. In later years, more of your payment goes toward paying down your principal.
