Answer #1

Answer :-

Here we need to findout the monthly rent for Art .

Montly rent for Art = Return on the investment + Total monthly expenses  

Where,

Return on the investment = 250,000 * 12%

= $30,000

Return on the investment = $30,000

Total monthly expenses = [ Tax + General expenses per annum + Condo fees per annum ] / 12

Where ,

Tax   = [ [ 250,000 * 70% ] * $31.50 ] / 1,000

= [175,000 * $31.50 ] / 1,000

= 5,512,500 / 1,000

= $5,512.50

Tax = $5,512.50

Total monthly expenses = [ $5,512.50 + [ $275 * 12 months ] + [ $140 * 12 months ] ] / 12

= [ $5,512.50 + 3,300 + 1,680 ] / 12

= 10,492.5 / 12

= $874.375

Total monthly expenses = $874.375

Finally ,

Montly rent for Art = $30,000 + $874.375

= 30,874.375

= $30,874

Montly rent for Art = $30,874
