General Financial Resources 


Financial Tools and Calculators

  • Life Energy Calculator by Your Money or Your Life. How much do you actually make per hour once you factor in the demands of your job?

  • Mortgage payment calculator. Make sure to put in current interest rates, property taxes for the area you’re buying in, and accurate insurance & down payment info.

  • Mortgage affordability calculator Warning!! This calc does not take maintenance costs into account. I recommend factoring in at least $200/month off what they say you can afford to save toward maintenance, or else how will you fund that new roof or heating system when they need replacing?
