    In a long-term decision model for project feasibility, what impact on a developer-owner's net present value would occur for each of the following changes in the model's assumptions?

    1. Decrease in the net present value.
    2. Increase in the net present value.
    3. No change in the net present value.

    Treat each item below independent of all other items and place the correct number (1-3) in the space provided. Each change has only one correct answer.

    _____ d. Decrease mortgage principal amount provided by the lender
    _____ e. Lower the interest rate charged by the lender
    _____ f. Increase the amortization period of the mortgage
    _____ g. Decrease the capitalization rate used to estimate the reversion value

    Treat each item below independent of all other items and place the correct number (1-3) in the space provided. Each change has only one correct answer.

    _1___ a. Decrease projected average room rates
    Since the revenue decreases (lower projected room rates) after tax cash flow (ATCF) will decrease. Hence there is a decrease in net present value (NPV)

    1_____ b. Increase the equity hurdle rate

    Since the ATCF is ...
