Open Source Mortgage Model, With ARM Functionality

Check it out.  Updates in the “release notes” tab.  Right now the model allows for both fixed-rate and ARM mortgages.  ARM reset/recast equations are set (pretty sure about it at least!), home price appreciations fluctuate according to a random normal distribution bounded by mean/stdev from Case-Shiller Composite-10 data by default, although if a user has less optimistic assumptions (particularly about the mean monthly appreciation) it changes the outcome significantly.

Eventually we’re going to put this into an integrated tool with monte-carlo simulation showing the distribution/probabilities of outcomes to help users select the best option given their inputs/assumptions.  Eventually being the key word.

  1. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d really
    appreciate it.

  2. I am really impressed along with your writing talents and also with the format in your
    weblog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice high quality writing, it
    is rare to look a great blog like this one nowadays..
