This "Loan Comparison Calculator" is very similar to "Repayment Calculator" above, but you can compare two loan scenarios to help you choose the one that will be the best priced for you over the term of the loan. Note that if you sell your house before the loan term has been completed, then all comparison calculations will alter.
If you have a mortgage you really should check this "mortgage minimisation calculator" out. Input your current loan details such as the balance owing, interest rate, and current repayments, and this will tell you the remaining loan term. Then go one step further, and put a small payment increase on either a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis, and you will see in both dollars and time what you will save. Most people are amazed at what an increase of $25 per week will make to the amount of interest that you will pay to your lender over the loan term. This is not a secret, but you really do need to know this so that you can better manage your finances, What you do with your money now will significantly affect your latter years. For example If you smoke, try putting your cigarette money off your loan and see what your habit really costs you. You may get a shock. Whatever your circumstances, we urge you to always pay extra off your loan to get it repaid as soon as possible.
With this calculator you can see when your loan will be repaid, or what you will owe at the end of each year up to 30 years into the future.

We estimate that when you retire you will need to own your own home plus have an income earing nest egg that gives you about 80% of your working income. If your working salary is $50,000 pa then you need in income of about $40,000 to maintain a comfortable retirement. That could be provided by commercial property worth $550,000 that is debt free, or shares valued at $700,000 in blue chip income earning companies. (Note that this is a very rough guide and we recommend that you seek guidance from a qualified financial planner. Amounts are calculated as at 2008 and need to be increased by 5% for every year after that to allow for modest inflation) Right now you should work out how much you need to increase your home payments by to clear that debt, and then save to give you the money required for retirement.
