Financial health and stability depends upon making informed decisions about loans, debt, taxes, savings, and more. Unfortunately, most people (including first-time homebuyers!) lack a true understanding of how to apply math to help them clearly understand these essential areas.
While there are many specialized calculators out there for a particular area (say debt, or mortgage payments), there are few which consolidate all of the most popular financial calculators in one place. Not to mention, you can chalk up quite a bill paying $2 – $5 for each independent calculator you may need.
Recently I discovered CalcMoolator, a handy online collection of calculators which also has easy-to-use apps for both iOS and Android devices. The most popular calculators include:
- Auto Lease vs. Buy
- Auto Loan Estimate
- First-Year Baby Costs
- Estimate Your Credit Score
- Pay Off My Credit Card Debt Sooner
- My Lifetime Earnings
- Salary to Hourly Wage
- Rent vs. Buy
- What If I Pay More?
- Mortgage Payment Estimate
What’s more, you can even embed web-based CalcMoolator calculators in your own website/blog. It’s very handy for showing Rent vs. Buy and Mortgage Payment estimates.
