With RCBC’s online housing loan calculator, you can get an idea of how much your monthly amortization will be once you fill in the loan amount and down payment rate.
Choose the loan type that best fits your needs and the loan purpose. Key in your selling price, fixing option, loan period, and adjust the slider value of the downpayment option from 20% to 80%. You will then get a breakdown of the total loan amount, down payment, interest rate, and monthly amortization.
For example, let’s assume you want to borrow ₱2 million to purchase a house and lot. You plan to make a down payment of 20%, which is ₱400,000 with a repayment period of 20 years and a fixing option of five years.
The home loan online calculator shows the interest rate and monthly payment, but do note that these are indicative rates only.
