Stacks Developers: Mortgage Calculator Custom Stack?


(Mike S) #1

Hi developers, I don’t know if it is possible, but I have a client that I am developing a mortgage site for and they would like a mortage calculator on the site like the one here: http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/mortgages/mortgage-calculator.aspx

Developing a stack and making it work is out of my realm of expertise and would take me too long to learn so I thought I would ask here if anyone would be interested in the job of coding this.

The requirements are:

  • Include all the fields of the sample calc
  • Include optional Amortization/Payment Schedule like the sample
  • Include the “Additional Payments” option
  • Printable Summary
  • Of course, calculate accurate results, duh… :slight_smile:

The color scheme should be green and fancy graphs would be nice, but not needed.

I would prefer the page to not be a .ASPX.

This is a paying job that we would like to be exclusive to us with source code. If you would like to offer the calculator for sale on the open market, then we could discuss that as well.

Please let me know if you have interest and any other questions, thanks.
Mike

Would something like this work?

Thanks, I like that but I really need the ability to calculate for Additional Payments. The client was pretty specific about needing to have that feature in the calculator. Maybe the feature is there but I didn’t see it.

Thanks though!

You could use Closing Costs as Additional Payments, on the calculator sugested by jabostick

Good idea, I asked the author about doing that so we’ll see what they say, thanks!

I like the stacks, but neither one has the options my client needs or has an output for amortization tables. I know there are a lot of javascript calculators out there and thought it might be easy for a developer to adapt one to a stack but I don’t really understand the amount of work that goes into it so I doubt it is as easy as I would think.

For now I am using some PHP calculators that kind of work but it doesn’t really looks right and I am not completely happy with it but it’ll have to do for now.

I actually reached out to the developer of this calculator and he will be making the changes I need which is very cool! :clap:
