Voice Activated Mortgage Calculator

A voice activated mortgage calculator is one of the new digital personal assistants available to home and mortgage shoppers everywhere. Why fumble around typing numbers into your small keyboard … when you can just ask your phone the question and get an answer within seconds?

Hound, a popular mobile voice activated search engine, offers this on their mobile app. (Hound is available in both Android and IOS formats)

How the Voice Activated Mortgage Calculator Works

The answer depends on the question you ask it.  In the video below we ask the following question:

“What is the monthly payment for a 250,000 thousand dollar home with 5 percent down and an interest rate of 4.5 percent on a 30 year fixed loan?”

Tip for Using the Voice Activated Mortgage Calculator from Hound

Download the app and then to start with, copy this question “What is the monthly payment for a 250,000 thousand dollar home with 5 percent down and an interest rate of 4.5 percent on a 30 year fixed loan?”  If you’re nervous about getting your question just right, print it and read it until you feel more comfortable with doing it.  You can tweak your results by changing the interest rate, amount of down payment, number of years on the loan and more!

Believe me, once you start discovering the ease of using your voice alone to search for information there’s no turning back.  Just for fun try asking Hound the following, “Show me all of the hotels in downtown Chicago under 150 dollars a night that have a free breakfast and wi-fi.”
