There are 12 months in a year, so there are 12*30 = 360 months in 30 years So Sofia is making 360 equal payments (maybe the last payment will be slightly smaller than the rest)

so if she pays a total of $691,880 (ignoring the down payment), then we can say monthly payment = (Total Cost)/(Number of Payments)

There's a formula to calculate monthly payments, but it's easier to use a calculator

ok let's use the calculator here's a good one http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/mortgages/mortgagecalculator.aspx if you type in 109000 in the first box, 30 in the box below that, then 2.8 in the box below that...then hit enter...you'll get your answer tell me what it gives you

Okay. Emily obtains a $1,250,000 balloon mortgage for an investment property. The mortgage has terms of 30/5 at an interest rate of 3.5%. The monthly payment is $5,613.06. How much is the remaining balance after 5 years rounded to the nearest dollar?

let me look up what the 30/5 means real quick, one sec

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
hmm i think what the 30/5 means is that you pay the mortgage just as if it was a 30 year mortgage but at the end of 5 years, you would make a lump sum payment to pay off the remaining balance or refinance into some other type of mortgage that's what I'm reading here anyway http://www.mortgageqna.com/mortgageloantypes/5yearballoonmortgagedifferentfroma51arm.html

again, there's a formula to do this, but it's kinda a pain so that's why amortization calculators with amortization tables are very handy

ok now type 1250000 in the first box 30 in the box below that and 3.5 in the box below that then hit "Show/Recalculate Amortization Table"

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what that does is show you how much you've paid off for a given month and how much you have left on your balance at any given period of time

Alright, I got that part done.

if you scroll to Feb 2018, which is exactly 5 years from now, you'll see the remaining balance is 1,148,801.82 so this is how much left you still have to pay off

oh sry, i meant to say 1,121,213.41
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and you would round this to the nearest dollar (like they instruct) to get 1,121,213
