What is a repayment table or table of a mortgage loan?

An amortization table is a table in which all the monthly payments of the loan are related, breaking down which part corresponds to capital amortization and which part to the interest payment.

The repayment schedule in the Good Finance simulator is calculated using the French or constant installment system , which is the usual method of repayment of personal and mortgage loans in Spain. The French repayment system uses a formula that allows the loan holder to pay a fixed fee every month.

As the interest is calculated on the capital pending repayment, in the first life of the loan, the interest payment is very high and little capital is returned. With the passage of time, the payment of interest decreases and the return of capital increases.

How can I know what is the maximum monthly payment I can pay?

To simulate the maximum monthly installment that you must “allow” to pay for a loan, it is good that you do a simulation. Use a calculator or an excel sheet and make a simple division: your monthly net salary (the amount of your payroll) between 30% or 35%.

Although technically the maximum debt ratio is considered to be 40%, it is advised to exercise caution in favor of greater financial security.

Thus, if for example you have a monthly payroll of 1,400 USD, the fee should not exceed 500 USD.

Anyway, it is better not to have the money of the extra payments in this calculation, since there are always unforeseen expenses and it is also necessary to generate periodic savings that increases your liquidity position and provides you with financial security present and facing your withdrawal for retirement.

How can I calculate the maximum amount I can afford?

The maximum amount of mortgage loan that you can afford or will be granted by the bank will be the result of crossing 3 variables: interest rate, monthly installment and term.

  • The interest rate commonly used by private credit analysis systems is usually a fixed rate of 4.50%.
  • In the monthly fee section you must enter a maximum of 35% of your monthly net income.
  • The total term allowed by banks is usually between 30 and 40 years, with the age limit of the youngest holder between 70 and 75 years.

A standard example would be: a monthly fee of 600 USD, with a total term of 35 years and interest rate 4.50%. For this case, the maximum mortgage amount is 147,900 USD.

With the simulator, how can I know if it is convenient to reduce the term or the installment of my mortgage?

You may want to reduce the term of your mortgage if your debt ratio is low. An entity may offer you a standard 30 or 35 year mortgage even if you can repay the loan in a shorter term.

Therefore, regardless of the bank’s offer, you have to make your calculations, since the shorter the term of the mortgage, the less interest you will pay and before you have canceled this payment obligation.

As for the mortgage payment , you have to assess whether you are currently paying another or other personal loans or are going to need them for car acquisition or other personal or family care. In these situations, present or foreseeable in the future, it is advisable to reduce the monthly fee.

You have to be aware that even if you have the car paid, it may fail you or you may want to change cars within a few years of contracting the mortgage. Then you should choose to extend the application for the total term of the mortgage to the maximum allowed by the bank. This will allow you a better quality of life, financial tranquility, ability to save and manage your accounts with more slack.
