Bob & Betty Homebuyers want to make an offer on this property at the list price. Bob earns $48,000 per year and Betty earns $54,000 per year. They have very good credit. Their monthly payments are $200 for student loans, $350 for their car payment and minimum credit card payment of $50. They have savings of $125,000. The balance of their student loans is $40,000.
Insurance on this house will cost them $900 per year. Property taxes are calculated at 1.25% of the purchase price per year. Monthly mortgage insurance is required if the down payment is less than 20%.
In addition to prepaid finance charges, they will have other closing costs of $3,000.
You are to evaluate 4 financing scenarios for them. You must determine if they qualify for each of them. They can get loan approval if their housing ratio is less than 32% and their total debt to income ratio is less than 43%.
1. Loan A – Fixed 30 year loan at 3.25% for 80% of the purchase price. Prepaid finance charges will be $1,500 plus 1.60 points on the loan.
2. Loan B  Fixed 30 year loan at 3.625% for 80% of the purchase price. Prepaid finance charges will be $0 plus 0.00 points on the loan. Higher rate, no closing costs.
3. Loan C  Fixed 30 year loan at 3.50% for 90% of the purchase price. Mortgage insurance will cost 0.44% of the loan amount per year. Prepaid finance charges will include the mortgage insurance (included in calculation of APR), plus $1,500 plus 0.25 points on the loan.
4. Loan D  Intermediate adjustable rate mortgage that has a fixed interest rate for the first 5 years at 2.875% for 80% of the purchase price. Prepaid finance charges include 1 point of the loan amount plus $1,500. This loan has an initial interest rate change cap of 5%, subsequent change caps of 2%/year and a life cap of 5%. The lender will use an interest rate of 3.50% to calculate the loan payment to determine their debt to income ratio since there may be payment shock when the rate changes after 5 years.
