## How To Use

This package is intended to help understand the true cost of a mortgage. It also can help you easily compare between different mortgages.

Begin by importing the loan class

from mortgage import Loan


Create a simple mortgage

from mortgage import Loan

loan = Loan(principal=200000, interest=.06, term=30)


View a summary of pertinent mortgage information by calling the summarize property.

from mortgage import Loan

loan = Loan(principal=200000, interest=.06, term=30)
loan.summarize

>>> Original Balance:         $200,000 >>> Interest Rate: 0.06 % >>> APY: 6.17 % >>> APR: 6.00 % >>> Term: 30 years >>> Monthly Payment:$    1199.10

>>> Total principal payments: $200,000.00 >>> Total interest payments:$ 231,676.38
>>> Total payments:           $431,676.38 >>> Interest to principal: 115.8 % >>> Years to pay: 30.0  Particularly telling is the Interest to Principal ratio. With the mortgage terms above, you will pay 115% of the original balance in interest! Compare that to the same loan with a 15 year term below from mortgage import Loan loan = Loan(principal=200000, interest=.06, term=15) loan.summarize >>> Original Balance:$    200,000
>>> Interest Rate:                    0.06 %
>>> APY:                              6.17 %
>>> APR:                              6.00 %
>>> Term:                               15 years
>>> Monthly Payment:          $1687.71 >>> Total principal payments:$ 200,000.00
>>> Total interest payments:  $103,788.46 >>> Total payments:$ 303,788.46
>>> Interest to principal:            51.9 %
>>> Years to pay:                     15.0


In this case, you only pay 52% of the original loan balance in interest. Obviously, the shorter the term with all else equal, the less interest you'll pay. But it helps to know exactly how much more/less you'll pay.
