How to use a loan payoff calculator

You may have some extra disposable income that you want to use to reduce your debts. Alternatively, you may be urgently searching for a way to reduce your monthly repayments. Regardless of your reasoning, a loan payoff calculator can be used to help you achieve your debt repayment objectives.

You'll quickly discover that loan repayment calculators are widely available online. If your loan is with a leading bank, you can perform your calculations at the loans section of their website. If not, you can use the one at prudentminds.com/loan-calculator.html. All that you have to do is enter the principal, rate of interest and term to find out how much you need to pay.

If you're getting a new loan, use a comparison site, such as moneysupermarket.com, to trawl the web for the best deal. You'll be able to find a loan that's a good fit for your credit profile. Once you have your rate of interest, you just need to determine how much you need to borrow and over how long. Just enter the figure into the loan calculator and keep adjusting it until you find an optimum level.

If you want to improve affordability, consider extending the term of the loan. Keep entering different repayment terms into your loan payment calculator until you reach a level that's affordable. The longer the term, the more debt interest that you'll pay the lender. If you want to pay off your debts more quickly, try reducing the repayment term. If you're paying a high rate of interest, you'll benefit greatly from this approach. Just don't over-stretch yourself financially or you make struggle to keep up with the repayment schedule in the future.
