During this project, we will be working together to create a home affordability worksheet in Google Sheets. You will learn how to create formulas to include interest rates on multiple debt items, and show the timeline it will take to payoff the debt. This is a great tool to use if you have plans to purchase a home in the future, and want to learn how much you can afford. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


Familiarity of Google Sheets or a workbook system and a free Google email account is required for this project.
