2 / 4

In this lab, we will compare 3 different loan options. Suppose that you are buying a house for $205,000. The loan is at a fixed APR of 3.5% for 30 years. 

Option 1: Making a down payment 

  • 1. If a 10% down payment is required, calculate this amount: ______________ 
  • 2. What amount remains to be financed (this will be your loan amount)? _____________ 

(Please write this value in the chart below in the first row under “Balance”.) 

  • 3. Use the “Loan Payment Formula” to calculate your monthly payment: ______________ 

(Note that property tax and homeowner’s insurance will usually be added to the monthly payment, but we will look at just the payment on the principal for comparison purposes.) 

  • 4. A table of principal and interest payments over the life of a loan is called an amortization table. Amortization tables can be built by hand but are ideally built with a spreadsheet or using an online tool. Go to Moodle and use the “Amortization Table Spreadsheet for Chapter 4 Lab” to complete the Amortization Table below.
