During this project, we will be working together to create a mortgage payment calculator in Google Sheets. You will be able to create a mortgage payment calculator in Google Sheets. You will learn how to create formulas to include logical expression, dataset values, IF,COUNTA,PV,and PMT. We will look at the equity at 5-years, and review five different home loan options. 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, and if you have room to make additional payments, how quickly you will payoff the mortgage. 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.
