This site was founded over a decade ago & offers home buyers an array of useful calculation tools and helpful guides which help them make important financial decisions. People who use our site can learn how to save money on their mortgage, improve their home safety and make better personal finance decisions.
Our site initially began as a single calculator on the homepage. As the site's popularity grew we added calculators for refinancing, home equity loans & lines, state real estate guides, a news blog & other related features.
Many real estate professionals & financial institutions have referred to our website, but others wanted to be able to embed our calculators on their sites. We created a variety of options they could embed on their sites. We also published an online real estate marketing guide many years ago. It has been updated periodically, though the structure of the web has changed greatly since this site was launched. Some of the big picture changes are:
We have added many other features to the site including things like a button for sharing calculations, a printer-friendly option to print the results of a calculation, & a variety of more specific calculators to enable things like comparing the amortization of fixed and adjustable mortgages side-by-side. As the web evolves we will keep up with important changes.
Like many other Web sites, mortgagecalculator.org makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Our site has been referenced by numerous popular newspapers like the New York Times & The San Francisco Chronicle along with being referenced by other popular consumer destinations like HGTV. If you have any media inquiries you can contact us at .gro.rotaluclacegagtrom@ofni
On our blog we have interviewed many influential voices in personal finance over the years, however we do not respond to guest post requests or requests to sell links. Those types of emails are immediately flagged as spam and discarded.
Currently we use Google AdSense as our display ad provider. If you advertise with Google AdWords you can use their placement targeting option to advertise on our site and other sites in the Google network.
Our mortgage rate tables are powered by BankRate. Their media kit for advertisers is published at https://www.bankrate.com/media-kit/
Use the contact form below if you would like to advertise directly with us. Please note that we require a minimum ad buy of $5,000 in any direct media deal. We are also rather exclusive with which ads we will carry. We have placed relevancy first & have avoided things that tend to annoy users like "punch the monkey" ads, in-text hover ads, and various forms of automated pop ups, auto-playing videos and the like.
Some prospective advertisers insist they have a powerfully engaging ad for a vital credit monitoring service & suggest we integrate that ad aggressively all over our site as an affiliate offer. If you are an advertiser who is confident your ad converts well you should be able to buy through one of the above ad networks to test performance & then only come directly to us once you are willing to pre-pay for the ad placement.
Other advertisers wanted to buy a tracking pixel on our site & we have turned down 100% of those offers as we feel it would be a violation of our user's privacy.
Our site has been successful & growing in popularity for a decade in large part because we put user experience first. We give users the options to turn ads off on our homepage. No page on our site has more than a couple ad units & some sections have 1 or even 0 ads. For example, due to the limited screen size of mobile devices we do not show display ads on the m. version of our homepage. We only show a rate table on that page which we feel adds value to the user experience. That rate table is also shown at the bottom of the page to put the calculator front and center.
If you are an ad network which wants to partner with us, we recommend first testing your ads through AdSense or other certified third party networks which are partnered with Google to verify performance and use that as a baseline. We require upfront payments to test any new ad networks, as it doesn't make sense for us to take all the risk, especially if these other networks are confident of their performance potential.
