Recommended Online Mortgage Calculator

Best Online Mortgage Calculator?
The BEST online Mortgage Calculator that I know of is linked below. Pull your mortgage info and enter on this calculator to see where you stand.  You will need to know: your mortgage amount, term of loan, interest rate and initial payment date.  It's easy, so try it out.

Best Feature: in addition to a standard feature of allowing extra prepayments starting on a given date, the calculator will also allow for 5 one-time prepayments or annual prepayments. Recommended by Mel Coker!
