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)

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

tell me what you get for the monthly payment

Bob has a 30-year adjustable rate mortgage that has a rate of 2.8% for the first 3 years. The amount of the mortgage is $109,000. What is the monthly payment during this initial period?

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

which one do you want to use?

- anonymous

Either.

- jim_thompson5910

ok let's use the calculator
here's a good one
http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/mortgages/mortgage-calculator.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

- jim_thompson5910

oh when i mean "hit enter" i meant "hit calculate"

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?

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

remember that calculator link I sent you?

- anonymous

yea

- jim_thompson5910

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_thompson5910

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

- anonymous

Alright, I got that part done.

- jim_thompson5910

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

- jim_thompson5910

oh sry, i meant to say 1,121,213.41

- jim_thompson5910

and you would round this to the nearest dollar (like they instruct) to get 1,121,213

- anonymous

Alright thank you.
