Name ______________________________
Buying a House

Select a house from a real estate booklet, newspaper, or website. Find something reasonable
between $100,000 and $350,000. In reality, a trained financial professional can help you
determine what is reasonable for your financial situation. Take a screen shot of the listing for
your chosen house and attach it to this project. Assume that you will pay the asking price for
your house.

The listed selling price is ______$350,000______.

Assume that you will make a down payment of 20%.

The down payment is ___$70,000_____. The amount of the mortgage is __$280,000___.

Ask at least two lending institutions for the interest rate for both a 15-year and a 30-year fixed
rate mortgage with no points or other variations on the interest rate for the loan.

Name of first lending institution: _____Deseret First Credit Union_______.

Rate for 15-year mortgage: ___3.0%___. Rate for 30-year mortgage ___3.75%_____.

Name of second lending institution: _America First Credit Union__.

Rate for 15-year mortgage: ___3.25%____. Rate for 30-year mortgage __4.0%____.

Assuming that the rates are the only difference between the different lending institutions, find the
monthly payment at the better interest rate for each type of mortgage.

15-year monthly payment: _$1933.63__. 30-year monthly payment ___$1296.73__.

These payments cover only the interest and the principal on the loan. They do not cover the
insurance or taxes.

To organize the information for the amortization of the loan, construct a schedule that keeps
track of: (1) the payment number and/or (2) the month and year (3) the amount of the payment,
(4) the amount of interest paid, (5) the amount of principal paid, and (6) the remaining balance.
There is a Loan Amortization schedule in CANVAS.
Its not necessary to show all of the payments in the tables below. Only fill in the payments in
the following schedules. Answer the questions after each table.

Use the proper word or phrase to fill in the blanks.


The total principal paid is the same as the ____Loan Amount____.
The total amount paid is the number of payments times ___the monthly payment____.
The total interest paid is the total amount paid minus ____the principle____.

Use the proper number to fill in the blanks and cross out the improper word
in the parentheses.
Payment number 1 is the first one in which the principal paid is greater than the interest
paid.

The total amount of interest is $211,946.85 less than the mortgage.

The total amount of interest is 75.6% less than the mortgage.

The total amount of interest is 24.3% of the mortgage.

Payment number _140_ is the first one in which the principal paid is greater than the interest
paid.
The total amount of interest is $93,179.48 less than the mortgage.

The total amount of interest is 33% less than the mortgage.

The total amount of interest is 66% of the mortgage.

Suppose you paid an additional $100 a month towards the principal

The total amount of interest paid with the $100 monthly extra payment would be
$160,821.85.

The total amount of interest paid with the $100 monthly extra payment would be
$25,998.67 less than the interest paid for the scheduled payments only.

The total amount of interest paid with the $100 monthly extra payment would be 13.9%
less than the interest paid for the scheduled payments only.
The $100 monthly extra payment would pay off the mortgage in 27 years and 9 months;
thats ____ months sooner than paying only the scheduled payments.

Summarize what you have done and learned on this project. Because this is a math project, you
must compute and compare numbers, both absolute and relative values, that havent been
compared above. Statements such as a lot more and a lot less do not have meaning in a
Quantitative Reasoning class. Make the necessary computations and compare (1) the 15-year
mortgage payment to the 30-year mortgage payment, (2) the 15-year mortgage interest to the 30-
year mortgage interest, (3) the 15-year mortgage to the 30-year mortgage with an extra payment,
and (4) the 15-year mortgage to the 30-year mortgage with a large enough extra payments to
save 15 years and have the loan paid off in 15 years. Also, keep in mind that the numbers dont
explain everything. Comment on other factors that must be considered with the numbers when
making a mortgage.
