Monthly Damage
Are you trying to buy a house? Well, if so, this tells you how much you'll have to pay each month for it, factoring in taxes and loan terms, so you can immediately find out if a house or condo is just too bonkers for you.

What's the total cost of the loan, the combined interest added on? Might be nice to add a way to capture the data to the clipboard rather than email (maybe as a 'print this' option?) and add the load interest to the principle for a total of what you pay.

The "total cost of loan" is the total amount of interest you will pay over the term. That's confusing, so I just renamed it to "total interest."

The clipboard thing is a good idea, given that not everyone emails now. I'll take a shot at it!

OK, updated with copy-to-clipboard support!

I'll think about fitting in the grand total thing tonight.

Ha! I love the dilapidated-structure background images. Cool little app.

The plus/minus buttons are teeny-tiny in Chrome on my relatively big-screen'd laptop.

It's my little commentary on our local housing market!

Yeah, those +/- buttons are way too tiny. They come from <input type="number">. I'll see if I there's some sorta CSS handle on those.
