  1. 1. Buying a New Home ... or is renting a better idea? Dad's new house by flickr user Patrick Haney
  2. 2. Tara wants to drive a small economy car priced at $19 800 before taxes. PST is 7% and GST is 5%. She has $3500 to use as a down payment for buying or leasing. If she buys the car, she will get a 4 year loan at 8.5% to pay for it. If she leases the car, she wants to buy the car at the end of the lease. The lease will be for 3 years at 8.5% and the residual value will be 43% of the original price. Tara will also need a 2 year loan (at 8.5%) at the end of the lease to buy the car. HOMEWORK (a) What is the total cost of buying the car? N=48 Cost w. Tax is $22 176 I%=8.5 After Down Payment: $18 676 PV=18676 PMT=-460.33 Monthly Payment: $460.33 FV=0 P/Y=12 C/Y=12 PMT: END BEGIN Total Cost of Car: 48 * $460.33 + $3 500.00 = $25 595.84
  3. 3. Tara wants to drive a small economy car priced at $19 800 before taxes. PST is 7% and GST is 5%. She has $3500 to use as a down payment for buying or leasing.

The lease will be for 3 years at 8.5% and the residual value will be 43% of the original price. Tara will also need a 2 year loan (at 8.5%) at the end of the lease to buy the car. (b) What is the total cost of owning the car if Tara leases it first? Residual Value HOMEWORK N=24 $19 800.00 * 0.43 = I%=8.5 N=36 $8 514.00 PV=8514 I%=8.5 Depreciation PMT=-387.01 $19 800.00 - $8 514.00 = PV=17654.32 FV=0 PMT=-348.84 $11 286.00 P/Y=12 FV=-8514 C/Y=12 Taxes P/Y=12 PMT: END BEGIN $11 286.00 * 0.12 = C/Y=12 $1 354.32 Lease: $16 058.24 PMT: END BEGIN PV of Lease Loan Buy-Out: $9 288.24 $19 800.00 + $1 354.32 - $3 500.00 = Total Cost: $25 346.48 $17 654.32
  4. 4. Tara wants to drive a small economy car priced at $19 800 before taxes. PST is 7% and GST is 5%. She has $3500 to use as a down payment for buying or leasing. If she buys the car, she will get a 4 year loan at 8.5% to pay for it. If she leases the car, she wants to buy the car at the end of the lease. The lease will be for 3 years at 8.5% and the residual value will be 43% of the original price. Tara will also need a 2 year loan (at 8.5%) at the end of the lease to buy the car. HOMEWORK (c) Name two benefits of leasing the car instead of buying.
  5. 5. What are some advantages of buying? Of leasing?
  6. 6. HOMEWORK Ted's Truck (a) Ted, a construction worker, wants to buy a new pickup truck priced at $36 699.00 plus PST (7%) and GST (5%). His current truck has a trade-in value of $6800.00. What is the total cost of the truck if Ted has $3500.00 for a down payment, and takes out a three-year loan at 8.5% for the balance? What is the value of each monthly payment? (b) Ted also considers leasing the truck (still priced at $36 699.00) for three years. He is able to use the old truck valued at $6800.00 plus $3500.00 as the down payment. The lease rate is 7.3%, and the residual value is set at $22 499.00. What is the total cost of the lease? How much is the monthly lease payment? (c) At the end of the three-year lease, Ted may decide to buy the truck for the residual value, plus PST and GST. He would take out a two-year loan at 7.5% to pay for the truck. What is the total cost of the truck after the loan for the residual value is paid off? (d) Which is more economical - buying the truck (#a) or leasing the truck and then buying it later? (e) What are some advantages of buying rather than leasing the truck that Ted might consider?

  16. 16. quot;How Much Can I Afford to Pay for a Home?quot; Banks and other lending institutions have developed a formula that allows you to calculate the maximum price of a home you can afford. This formula is known as the Gross Debt Service Ratio, or GDSR. According to this formula, anyone buying a home should spend no more than 32% of gross income on household or accommodation expenses, including mortgage payments, property taxes, heating and condo/strata fees. The formula may be written as: Find your maximum mortgage Looking for a house? amount and monthly payment http://is.gd/zxd5 http://is.gd/zxay
