What is an Amortization Schedule?

When borrowers apply for a mortgage to finance the purchase of their home, they need to repay the loan to the lender on a monthly basis. A mortgage amortization schedule is a table that shows each monthly payment that borrowers will make throughout the loan. The amortization schedule usually lists the monthly payment amount, principal payment, interest payment, and the remaining balance. While the monthly payment amount stays the same on a conventional mortgage with a fixed interest rate, the principal and interest amount varies each payment.


How Does Amortization Work?

A traditional mortgage with a fixed interest rate has a fixed monthly payment. In the beginning, the majority part of the payment is for interest, with little money paying down the principal. As time progresses, the ratio between interest and principal will get smaller and eventually reverse. For this reason, the longer the term, the more interest a borrower will be paying. The most common mortgage terms are 30 years and 15 years in the United States. Borrowers will be paying a lot more money in interest with a 30-year term than a 15-year term mortgage.


Amortization Schedule Example

Let's take a look at an example of how much more a borrower will pay at the end of a 30-year term compared to the 15-year term. Example 1 Mortgage Amount = $300,000 Term = 15 year Interest Rate = 5% The monthly payment is $2,372.38 for the 15-year term, and the total payment is $427,028.56 when the mortgage is paid off after 15 years. Example 2 Mortgage Amount = $300,000 Term = 30 year Interest Rate = 5% The monthly payment is $1,610.46 for the 30-year term, and the total payment is $579,767.35 when the mortgage is paid off after 30 years. As we can see from the above 2 examples, a $300,000 mortgage with a 15 year term and a fixed rate of 5% pays about $127,028.56 in interest and a total payment of $427,028.56, whereas a 30 year term with the same interest pays about $279,767.35 and a total payment of $579,767.35. Borrowers pay $152,738.79 more in total payment on a mortgage of $300,000 on a 30-year term although the monthly payment is lower.


How to Calculate Amortization Schedule?

An amortization schedule consists of four parts, the monthly payment, interest payment, principal payment, and the remaining balance. Therefore, we must have an amortization schedule formula that calculates each of the four items. Following are the step-by-step instructions on how to calculate the amortization schedule. Amortization Schedule Formula Step 1 - Calculate the monthly payment Monthly Payment = (P x i/100/12) / (1 - 1 / (1 + i/100/12)^ n)), where P = Balance i = interest rate n = number of months to pay off the loan The reason we need to divide the interest rate by 100 and 12 is that we need to express the interest rate in decimal instead of percentages, and there are 12 months in a year.  Using the above formula, we will get the monthly payment, but we still need to find the interest and principal payment each month.


Step 2 - Calculate the monthly interest payment To calculate the monthly interest payment, we will need to divide the annual interest rate by 12 as there are 12 months in a year. We also need to divide the interest rate by 100 to express the interest rate as a decimal instead of a percentage. Interest Payment = (i / 12 / 100) x Balance, where i = interest rate Step 3 - Calculate the monthly principal payment The monthly payment is calculated by subtracting the total monthly payment from the interest payment for that month. Principal Payment = Monthly Payment - Interest Payment Step 4 - Calculate the remaining balance The remaining balance is calculated by subtracting the monthly payment from the current balance. Remaining Balance = Current Balance - Monthly Principal Payment Step 5 - Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the mortgage is the payoff Steps 1 - 4 calculate only the first month of an amortization table. In order to get a complete amortization schedule, we need to repeat steps 1 - 4 for the whole payment term until the mortgage is paid off. The only difference is that we will base our calculation on the remaining balance instead of the original loan amount. For a 15-year mortgage, we would have to repeat the above steps 180 times as there are 12 months in a year, and 15 x 12 = 180.


Creating An Amortization Schedule

Let's take a look at how we will create an amortization for a $300,000 mortgage with a 5% interest and 30-year term. Step 1 - Calculate the monthly payment Plug in the monthly payment formula, and we get
Monthly Payment = (P x i/100/12) / (1 - 1 / (1 + i/100/12)^ n)) Monthly Payment = (P x i/100/12) / (1 - 1 / (1 + i/100/12)^ n)) = (300,000 x 5/100/12) / (1 - 1 / (1 + 5/100/12)^ 360)) = (300,000 x 0.004167)/(1 - 1/(1 + 0.004167) ^ 360) = 1,250.1/(1 - 1/1.004167^360) = 1,250.1/(1- 1/4.46828) = 1,250.1/(1 - 0.2238) = 1,250.1/(0.7762) = 1610.46 $1,610.46 is the total monthly payment that a borrower will be paying each month. On a fixed interest mortgage, the monthly payment will stay the same throughout the loan terms, so you only need to calculate the monthly payment once. Step 2 - Calculate the monthly interest payment Interest Payment = (i / 12 / 100) x Monthly Payment Interest Payment = 5/12/100 x 300000 = 0.004167 x 300000 = 1250 $1,250 is the total interest payment for the first month. Step 3 - Calculate the monthly principal payment Principal Payment = Monthly Payment - Interest Payment = 1,610.46 - 1,250 = 360.46 $360.46 is the total principal payment for the first month. As we can see from the above, the interest payment for the first month far exceeded the principal payment. Interest payment will continue to be much more than the principal until a few years later. Step 4 - Calculate the remaining balance Remaining Balance = Current Balance - Monthly Principal Payment = 300,000 - 360.46 = 299,639.54 The remaining balance is $299,639.54 after the first monthly payment on the mortgage. Now, we have all the parts for our amortization schedule for the first months, and it would look like this.

Payment # Interest Paid Principal Paid Total Payment Remaining Balance
1 $1,250.00 $360.46 $1,610.46 $299,639.54

Step 5 - Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the mortgage is the payoff Since this is a 30 year term, we would have to repeat the above steps 360 times to get the complete amortization table. We won't repeat the steps here, but the following is what the amortization schedule would look like.

Payment # Interest Paid Principal Paid Total Payment Remaining Balance
1 $1,250.00 $360.46 $1,610.46 $299,639.54
2 $1,248.50 $361.97 $1,610.46 $299,277.57
