## Understanding Loan Amortization

The Essence of Amortization: Amortization is the process of spreading out a loan into a series of fixed payments. Over time, the amount going towards the interest decreases, while the amount paying off the principal increases.

Strategic Insights:

• Shorter loan terms mean higher monthly payments but lower total interest.
• Longer loan terms reduce monthly payments but increase the total interest paid.
• This calculator helps in making informed decisions about loan terms and understanding the long-term financial implications.

The Amortization Calculator is a valuable tool for financial planning, providing clarity on loan repayment structures and helping to make strategic choices about borrowing.
