My Monthly Payments Will Be...
If you take out a $200,000 mortgage payment at 5.000% for 30 years, your monthly mortgage payment would be $1,073.64.
The payments on a fixed-rate mortgage don't change over time. The loan amortizes over the repayment period. This means that the proportion of interest paid vs. principal repaid changes each month. As the loan amortizes, the amount of monthly interest paid decreases while the amount of principal repaid increases.
Note: Principal and interest are usually only a portion of the monthly payment made to your bank. Most lenders also require payments for homeowners insurance and property taxes, too. Those payments get dropped into an escrow account so the bank can automatically make the annual (or semi-annual) insurance and property tax payments on your behalf when the bills come due.
