#### Loan Amount

The Loan Amount is the total sum you’re borrowing from the lender. It forms the basis of your mortgage calculation, influencing your monthly payments and interest calculations.

#### Down Payment

Your Down Payment is the initial amount you pay upfront. A higher down payment typically results in lower monthly payments, as it reduces the total loan amount needed.

#### Interest Rate

The Interest Rate, usually a percentage, directly affects your monthly payments. A lower interest rate means lower monthly costs, making it a crucial factor in choosing a lender.

#### Amortization Period

The Amortization Period is the total time over which your loan payments are spread. Extending this period can lower monthly payments but may increase the total interest paid over the life of the loan.

#### Balloon Payment Due (Years)

Balloon Payment Due indicates the year by which a lump-sum payment is expected, separate from your regular payments. This is typical in commercial loans, where the loan doesn’t fully amortize over its term.

#### Net Operating Income (NOI)

NOI represents the annual income generated by the property, minus operating expenses. It’s vital for calculating the Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR), indicating the property’s ability to cover loan payments.

#### Closing Costs

Closing Costs cover the fees and expenses incurred during the mortgage transaction. They include appraisal fees, title insurance, and legal fees, adding to the total cost of your loan.

#### Other Fees

Other Fees may include additional costs associated with securing your mortgage, such as application fees or broker fees. These should be considered in your overall financial planning.

#### How are mortgages calculated?

Mortgages are calculated using a combination of the principal amount (the loan amount), the interest rate, and the loan term. The principal is the amount of money you borrow from the lender, which you agree to pay back over a set period, along with interest—a fee charged by the lender for the use of their money. The calculation involves determining how much of your monthly payment goes towards paying the interest and how much reduces the principal. This process is known as amortization. For a standard fixed-rate mortgage, the monthly payments remain constant, with the proportion that goes towards the principal increasing over time, while the interest portion decreases.

#### What is Commercial-style amortization?

Commercial style amortization refers to the way commercial mortgage loans are structured in terms of repayment of the principal and interest over time. Unlike residential mortgages, which are typically fully amortized (meaning the loan is completely paid off at the end of the term), commercial loans often have a balloon payment at the end. This means that the loan payments are calculated as if the loan will be paid off over a longer period (for example, 25 or 30 years), but the actual term of the loan is shorter. At the end of this term, a balloon payment—the remaining balance of the loan—is due. This structure allows for lower monthly payments but requires the borrower to refinance, sell, or pay off the large remaining balance at the end of the loan term.
