While contemporary architecture has gotten a lot of press in recent years, the traditional home is certainly not down for the count. It's making a comeback in the form of the Modern Farmhouse.

Things to consider when using an online mortgage calculator:

- Break down the mortgage into monthly payments. AND don't forget to factor in the interest— the extra fees you pay your lender for borrowing all that cash. Then, on top of that, you will also have to pay property taxes and home insurance.
