    The Ultimate Mortgage Calculator discussion 16th Feb 10 at 7:34 PM
    Update 19 October 2010

    We have spent the last few months expanding this, hopefully making it... erm, ultimate-er?! It has new calculators, including:

    - Offsetting vs Savings/Mortgage
    - How much can I borrow?
    - Compare 2 fixed rates
    - Should I save or repay mortgage?

    Would be great to know what you think, and especially if you spot any glitches we have missed. We've done lots of testing but you neve know what can slip through the net!



    Original post

    Hi folks,

    This is the new Ultimate Mortgage Calculator (thanks for all the feedback those who helped before)

    Our plan is to work on a second version of this with added features and revisit it again soon. The current provisional list of additions includes:

    Ability to overpay lump sums and monthly amounts
    Ability to overpay by a percentage sum per year
    Ability to enter a part repayment/part interest-only mortgage
    Added 'Should I pay off mortgage with savings' question
    Added 'Is it worth getting an offset mortgage or saving' section

    If you've any thoughts on this calculator, or suggestions for improvements, extensions, please post and let us know.
