Loan Project: Buying a House




For this assignment, you will analyze a home mortgage loan.


1. Find a description, asking price, and real estate taxes of a house for sale,


and decide on a purchase price you would be willing to pay (assuming you


have the means). Find a current market interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate


mortgage having a down payment of 20 percent of the purchase price.


2. Compute the down payment, amount financed, and the monthly mortgage


payment (showing how to use the appropriate financial formula).


3. Compute the monthly amount of real estate taxes and add to the monthly


mortgage payment to get the total monthly amount paid.


4. Suppose that in order to qualify for the loan, the total monthly amount paid


cannot exceed 30 percent of monthly income. What is the minimum


monthly income needed to qualify for the loan? What is the minimum


annual income needed? (Note: This is a simplified minimum income


requirement calculation, for the purposes of this project, as it does not take


into account other costs such as insurance or other loans or assets currently

resources such as




6. Assume that the first payment is made in January of the current year. Find


the month and year of the last payment. Find the date of the first month


when the amount applied to the principal exceeds the amount of interest


paid. How many of the 360 payments have been made at this point?


7. Assuming that the mortgage is held for the full 30 years, compute the total


principal paid and the total interest paid.

you found to be particularly interesting, and why.
