  2. 2. The Petri Family: A Buy vrs. Rent Case Study The Petri family needs to move, and so they are looking for another home. They are considering buying or renting a home. The price of a suitable home is $125 000. The cost of renting a similar home is $875 per month. They have $21 000 invested in an account that is growing by 7% per year, and they will use this for the down payment and to cover the 'Additional Costs when Purchasing a Home' if they buy. They have also checked with their bank about a mortgage, and they can get a 25-year mortgage at 7.25% to pay for the balance of the home. Other things to consider are: • the 'Additional Costs when Purchasing a Home' are $6000.00, and so they will have $15 000 for the down payment • annual property taxes are about 1.5% of the value of the home • the home is expected to appreciate at 4% per year • rental payments are also expected to increase 4% per year • they expect to receive 7% per year growth in their investment if they do not use the $21 000 as a down payment for the home.

  15. 15. Rent or Buy? A Case Study ... The Browns have an opportunity to buy a home valued at $50 000 with a down payment of $5000 and a mortgage of $45 000, or rent the home for $525 per month. If they buy, they will get a 15-year mortgage at 7.5%. Annual property taxes are approximately 1.5% of the market value (i.e. the sale price) of the home. They expect their home to appreciate in value by about 2% per year. (That is, it will become 2% MORE VALUABLE each year. If it is worth $100 this year, next year it will be worth $102 and the year after that it would be worth $104.04.) If they rent, their rental payments will increase by 3% each year, and they expect to get a 7% annual return on their investment of the $5000 they did not use as a down payment.

  21. 21. Mr. T’s family has decided to buy a larger home, and the date of possession is April 1. HOMEWORK The price of the home is $135 000, and he has $45 000 as a down payment. He will buy homeowners insurance on the new home for $425, but will receive a refund of $300 from his previous home insurance policy. He has the new home appraised by a real estate agent, and the fee is $250. The bank requires a land survey which costs $550. His legal fees, including land transfer taxes and disbursements, are $875.The movers charged $1200 for moving his furniture and other belongings, and the company he works for paid half of this. The family decided to install new carpets into part of the house at a cost of $2400 plus PST and GST (7% each). He did the installation himself, and so there were no installation charges. They also bought a new fridge for $940 plus PST and GST (7% each) to replace the old one that did not fit into the new kitchen. The previous owner had paid the property taxes of $2350 for the period January 1 to December 31, and he had to pay for his share of the taxes. The cost of hooking up telephone and TV are $45. Determine the additional costs of moving for Mr. T and his family.
