Calculator tips

In this analysis, cash out is not considered as part of the cost of the loan since the cash could theoretically be put back into the loan.

Your tax rate is used to calculate the monthly advantage of your interest deduction. If you wish not to include the interest deduction advantage, you may set your tax rate to 0. Please keep in mind that your tax deduction may be limited beyond the scope of this calculator. Talk to your tax advisor before using these results in your specific situation.

The total loan cost figure is actually the present value of all the payments for as long as you keep this property, using the investment rate of return as a discount rate. You may also think of it as the amount you would have to invest today (e.g., in a savings account) to cover all the payments for as long as you keep this property. Negative savings are indicated by brackets.
