It seems like Google can do almost everything for us now; the company today added a new feature that allows you to quickly do calculations for taking out a mortgage.

The new feature lets you ask the search engine questions like “how much can I borrow at $200 a month” and Google will quickly spit out an answer on your maximum loan size.

This new tool is great for people like me, who have no idea about how a mortgage even works. I already use Google as a calculator for everything, so the mortgage tool is a great addition.
