First, please make sure you’ve gone through the various considerations and point in Should I Pay Off My Mortgage? This will ensure paying off your mortgage faster is the right thing to do for your situation.
In the Inputs tab (the tabs of the spreadsheet are located at the bottom) fill out your income and mortgage information. This includes things like your:
- After Tax Income & Debt Payments
- Loan Amount, Start Date & Payment Frequency
Next go to the Mortgage Plan tab and enter in your current interest rate in the top blue cell. As time passes, this interest rate will occasionally change and you can enter in the new rate on the appropriate dated row. This allows for the calculator to track and remain accurate.
Finally go to the Expense tab and fill in as much detail about your expenses as you can. When filling it out, don’t feel that you have to be 100% perfect.

Even if you simply estimate the numbers off the top of your head it’s better than nothing, the main focus should be on just getting some information in there. If your expenses aren’t 100% accurate then the numbers will be off, but over time you can update them and approach perfection. In truth, even my own Expenses tab isn’t 100% perfect as expenses fluctuate wildly.
Once you’ve entered in all the figures you can see all the automatically calculated data and graphs including the amortization schedule which is in the Mortgage Plan tab. The main area is the very first Dashboard tab which gives you a snapshot of what should be happening money wise each fortnight. Who is getting paid what, how much your loan payments should be and how much each of your expenses are. It also gives you your total net position and a graph outlining your specific mortgage plan.
We recommend using this Excel Mortgage Calculator Spreadsheet fortnightly. Each fortnight, or on your pay day, give it a quick 1-2 minute look over. Update your bank account values (as you just got paid), make sure your mortgage is at where your plan says it should be at and if you feel like it, maybe have a look at what expenses you may need to investigate.
