I use bank rate to calculate. Remember that you will have to pay for other costs (taxes, homeowners insurance, etc).

Hi Lenore - Be careful when defining the term "mortgage payment". More than one prospective and new homeowner gets confused on this. The term "mortgage payment" seems to be used by professionals to describe only the principal and interest portion of the monthly cost of home ownership. But there are other factors in play as well. If you are putting down less than 20% of the lesser of the property cost or appraisal value, then you will need to also pay for Private Mortgage Insurance (aka PMI) - which typically is collected along with your mortgage payment. So knowing what your loan amount is doesn't tell us if your loan will be subject to PMI. The amount for PMI varies widely as well, taking in to account what the percentage of the Loan-to-value (LTV), your credit score, whether you are paying towards the PMI at settlement to defray the cost of PMI or whether it's just going to be only in your monthly payments, etc.
Also there are other factors - real estate taxes (typically school district, county and city/township/borough); some include sewer and trash in taxes so it can be collected as part of your monthly payment and others don't.
Also, most mortgage companies charge a higher interest rate if you choose to NOT escrow your taxes, a higher rate will affect your monthly payment.
Taxes from house to house, even within the same taxing jurisdiction, can vary widely. It's based on the value of your house according to the last assessment (not necessarily appraisal), so pay attention to how the house you are looking to buy compares to similar houses for tax purposes.

Hi Lenore,

I am not a mortgage professional, but I typically advise my clients to estimate 1% as a "rough" estimate. It's a high estimate and more than your payment would actually be, but it's always nicer to be surprised by a lower payment rather than a higher one.

So for a 60k loan, I'd very roughly estimate $600 to take into account if there happens to be higher than usual property taxes, insurance, etc.

Best wishes,
Nishika Jones

Lenore, Roughly..........$400-$500.

I would have to have the variables such as Property Real Estate Taxes, Insurance, and the % of your loan which depends on the lender and your score.

Contact a professional Mortgage Broker, find a home and i can give you a better number.
