1.     Complete the “Buy or Rent” calculator using your own data. In 50-100 words answer the following: What was the recommendation? What were the factors that led to that recommendation? Do you agree or disagree with the recommendation?  Why?

2.     In a minimum of 100 words, explain the main benefits and drawback of renting and of owning a home?

3.     Review Exhibit 7-4.  In at least 100 words, summarize the steps in the home-buying process.

4.     Review Exhibit 7-6. Estimate the affordable monthly mortgage payment, the affordable mortgage amount, and the affordable home purchase price for the following situation.
· Monthly gross income: \$2,950
· Other debt, monthly payment: \$160
· Down payment to be made: 15% of purchase price
· Monthly property tax and insurance: \$210
· 30 year mortgage at 6%

Enter your calculation and response in this column

Step 1. Determine the monthly gross income (annual income divided by 12).

Step 2. Multiply step 1 by 33% for a PITI (principal, interest, taxes, and insurance) guideline.
NOTE: With a down payment of at least 5%  lenders use 33% of the gross income as a guide for PITI (principal, interest, taxes, and insurance)

Step 3. Subtract other debt payments from the result of Step 2 to determine the Affordable Monthly Mortgage Payment.

Step 4. Divide the result of Step 3 by 6.00 (this is the mortgage payment factor from Exhibit 7-7 based on a 30 year loan at 6%) and then multiply this by \$1,000. This is the Affordable Mortgage Amount.

Step 5. Divide the affordable mortgage amount by .85 (This is 1 minus the down payment percentage) to determine the Affordable Home Purchase.
