You can purchase a new building within the city limits for $525,000.
The city will offer a special incentive reducing the price by $25,000.
The city will finance the building over a period of 20 years at a 5.25% APR
Should you pay the loan off 5 years early the city will rebate you an additional 10% of the purchase price

I have figured out what to do, however, I am having a hard time putting this into an Excel Spreadsheet. Please review this method and place the following into a spreadsheet.

Involves borrowing $500,000 ($525,000 minus the 25K incentive) for 15 years at an annual interest rate of 5.25%

PMT formula would look something like this:

=INT/12,TERM*12-Amt Borrowed

You're dividing the Annual Interest Rate by 12 to determine the actual interest that you pay on each payment.

You're multiplying the Term by 12 to determine the Total Number of Payments made

The Amt Borrowed should have a minus sign in front of it in your Function

Once you've calculated your Monthly PMT just multiply it by the Total Number of PMTs made

=TERM*12*PMT to determine the Total Cost of the house

DO NOT forget to subtract $50,000 from it because you paid off the loan in 15 years.
answer should be $673,XXX..94

Recent Feedback
  • "I got this feedback and I wanted to know if you can explain it to me. I noticed something within your workings which I believe is incorrect.  It looks like you've mistaken the Debt ratio for the Equity Multiplier.  You've done a calculation to determine Return on Equity (ROE) but if you take a look at the ratios provided for us you'll see ROE listed on the bottom line already.  You can use ROE, Profit Margin and Total Asset Turnover to figure out the Equity Multiplier amount.  Equity multiplier is not provided for us and we need to calculate it.  I really hope this is helpful to you.  "
