Question

- Suppose that five years ago you borrowed $500,000 using a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with an annual interest rate of 7.00% with monthly payments and compounding. The interest rate on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages has fallen to 6.25% and you are wondering whether you should refinance the loan. Refinancing costs are expected to be 4% of the new loan amount.

- What is the net present value of refinancing if you make all of the scheduled payments on the new loan?
- What is the net present value of refinancing if you pay off the
new loan at the end of the 6
^{th}year? - How many payments do you need to make on the new loan in order for refinancing to have a positive net present value?

PLEASE USE A CALCULATOR IF POSSIBLE. AND PLEASE WRITE OUT EASY TO FOLLOW STEPS. THANK YOU

Answer #1

a. Existing EMI = $3,313 (Rate if interest is 7%)

New EMI = $3,079 (Rate of interest is 6.25%)

Difference = $234

This our saving for one month. We need to find the PV of all the savings for the remaining months

The PV of monthly savings is $38,000

The cost of refinancing loan is 4% of $500,000 which is $20,000

Therefore the net savings or the Net Present value of the refinancing option is $18,000 ($38,000-$20,000)

b. Existing EMI = $3,313

New EMI = $2,408

Difference = $905

This our saving for one month. We need to find the PV of all the savings for the remaining months

The PV of monthly savings at the end of 6th year is $30,950

The cost of refinancing loan is 4% of $500,000 which is $20,000

Therefore the net savings or the Net Present value of the refinancing option is $10,950 at the end of 6th year($38,000-$20,000). We can also discount the same to todays date using the interest rate as 6.25% and the answer comes to $7,221

Five years ago you borrowed $250,000 for a ten-year period at a
fixed interest rate of 9% p.a. with interest compounded on an
annual basis. You have been making regular annual payments on your
loan and you now wish to repay the amount outstanding on this loan
in full. The total amount you need to repay today is
closest to:
$151,521.
$168,850.
$194,775.
$217,051.

You took out your home mortgage five years ago, and are
currently considering refinancing into a loan at a lower rate and
for a shorter term. Your original loan was for 30 years, at 6%
interest on the $200,000 borrowed, and you pay monthly. The new
loan you are considering will be for 15 years at a rate of 4%.
Again, the payments will be monthly. What will your new payment be
if you take on this new loan? SHOW...

The mortgage on your house is five years old. It required
monthly payments of
$1,390,
had an original term of 30 years, and had an interest rate
of
10%
(APR). In the intervening five years, interest rates have
fallen and so you have decided to
refinance—that
is, you will roll over the outstanding balance into a new
mortgage. The new mortgage has a 30-year term, requires monthly
payments, and has an interest rate of
5.625%
(APR).
a. What monthly repayments...

Suppose you own your home, which you purchased 10 years ago
with a 30-year FRM at an annual interest rate of 6.5%. Recently,
mortgage interest rates have fallen to 3.5%. You’re considering
refinancing your home to take advantage of the lower interest rate.
What additional information would you need to determine whether it
makes financial sense to refinance? Briefly describe how you would
make this assessment.

Assume you have a 6% 30-year mortgage for $100,000 with now 10
years to maturity (annual payments with exactly one year to the
next payment). You are considering a refinance of the loan at 4%
with a refinancing fee of $4,000.
What is the remaining loan balance?

Five years ago you took out a 5/1 adjustable rate mortgage and
the five-year fixed rate period has just expired. The loan was
originally for $291,000 with 360 payments at 4.1% APR, compounded
monthly.
a. Now that you have made 60 payments, what is the remaining
balance on the loan?
b. If the interest rate increases by 1.2%, to 5.3% APR,
compounded monthly, what will your new payments be?

Two years ago Abilia purchased a $14,000 car; she paid $2,500
down and borrowed the rest. She took a fixed-rate 60-month
installment loan at a stated rate of 8.0% per year. Interest rates
have fallen during the last two years and she can refinance her car
by borrowing the amount she still owes on the car at a new fixed
rate of 4% per year for 3 years. Should Abilia refinance her loan?
How much will she save per month...

The mortgage on your house is five years old. It required
