# Finance : Mortgages and Amortization

Here is the problem

Delta , LLC, currently net leases its headquarters office building for \$70,000 per month, and this lease has two years left to run. (Under a commercial fully net lease, the tenant pays for all maintenance, repairs, insurance and property taxes.) Delta considers the rent to be less than the current market rate, but expected growth in its headquarters staff will require it to spend \$1 million in repartitioning, wiring and lighting this office space. As an alternative, it is considering building its own HQ building and financing it with a down payment of \$1 million and the remainder with a mortgage loan. Develop the following four alternatives for financing the project:

a. If this mortgage loan would be at 5 % annual interest, amortized in equal monthly P&I payments over 25 years, and the company limits these payments to the same \$70,000 per month, how much can it finance with this loan?

b. If this mortgage loan would be at 2 % annual interest, amortized in equal monthly P&I payments over 25 years, and the company limits these payments to \$ 100,000 per month, how much can it finance with this loan?

c. If this mortgage loan would be at 3 % annual interest, amortized in equal monthly P&I payments over 25 years, and the company limits these payments to \$90,000 per month, how much can it finance with this loan?

d. If this mortgage loan would be at 4 % annual interest, amortized in equal monthly P&I payments over 25 years, and the company limits these payments to \$80,000 per month, how much can it finance with this loan?

#### Solution Summary

This solution describes how to calculate the amount of financing available based on monthly payments and annual interest rates for four different scenarios.
