Wordpress Mortgage Loan Calculator & Current Mortgage Rates Plugins

Real Estate Technology with agentlabs

How many times have you lost a potential client because your real estate website didn't have enough information about local schools, the neighborhood or offer current mortgage rates and a loan calculator? Probably more than you know. A 2008 Yahoo Real Estate report clearly spells out the methodology used by consumers to select Agents, Brokers and Realtors.  Besides wanting real estate listings they also wanted tools and resources.

Wordpres Plugins

Well thanks to the good folks at MLCALC and assuming your running a Wordpress website you can now give them what they want by way of a plugin.  These plugins allow you to put the current mortgage rates and/or loan calculator in your sidebar as a widget or use "short codes" and add it to any page or post you choose.

We like these plugins because they present the desired information in a clear and easy to understand application and is feature rich.  Take a look at the DEMOs (links below) and see how much information is packed into these powerful plugins which are free!

In their words: Mortgage Loan Calculator is a great value-add for any loan officer or real estate agent looking to provide good-looking, functional, valuable content to readers. The execution of this calculator is superb from the smooth sidebar integration, modal window results and AJAX-based graphs that are incredibly visually appealing. It's a great little application that delivers a lot of value in a user-friendly and well-executed way

Wordpress Mortgage Loan Calculator Plugin

You can choose between a Narrow or Wide form.  After you input the loan parameters (i.e. loan size, down payment, term etc) and click the calculate button you are then presented to a detailed amortization table that includes date, principal, interest, taxes/insurances/pmi and balance.  This is done using a lightbox effect (the background darkens and the information looks like it's coming out at you).

If your not using Wordpress CMS you also have choice to "Cut & Paste" Javascript code or use an API call.  You can find further details about usage by visiting the links.

Fortunately, I am also aware of a plugin that allows you to calculate Mortgages, loan payments and other similar things as per the current interest rate and i.e. Simple Mortgage Calculator. I would suggest you all to take a look at this striking stuff and I am sure you are going to love it.
