I chose A as my loan choice. The reason I chose this 15 year loan is because

I would rather pay off my mortgage faster. The 15 year loan is quite expensive and

challenging, but I would have paid off this loan in a short period of time as

compared to the other loan choices which are relatively cheaper but take long

periods to pay.

I will have also paid less interest for the mortgage loan for the 15-year

period than if I chose 20-year loan or 30-year loan. This will help me in saving

enough money for other activities while servicing the loan. 3 MAT 110 FINANCIAL LITERACY PROJECT WORKSHEET Fall 2015 HU Quality Enhancement Plan:

Calculate the monthly payment including insurance and property taxes. Assume

yearly homeowner?s insurance costs of 0.5% of the price of the house. The mil

rate for property taxes is \$1.24 per hundred dollars assessed value. Assume you

will be living in the house and assume the assessed value of the house is the same

as the listed price.

4 MAT 110 FINANCIAL LITERACY PROJECT WORKSHEET Fall 2015 HU Quality Enhancement Plan:

From These Roots?A Foundation for Life: Mathematics and Financial Literacy individual, it is necessary for one to determine the effect of paying off mortgage loan on their

monthly salary.

Firstly, one has to compute their monthly salary based on the two grade test provided. The

federal and state taxes will apply for salaried employees and therefore one has to determine the

percentage of tax they are paying to the state. For one to own a mortgage, they must at first have

some savings in their account. This savings will provide a portion to be used to determine the

down payment for a mortgage loan. A principal amount is required for calculating monthly

mortgage payment and this is obtained from purchase price of the property less down payment.

Once, a down payment and principal amount is determined, it is necessary for one to find out the

different types of loan choices that are available for them. These loan choices have varying

interest rates and periods of payment with each interest rate increasing as number of years are

increased. For this case, the interest rates for 15-year loan is quite low (3.88%) compared to 30year loan (4.75%). This also implies high monthly mortgage payment in contrast with the 20year and 30-year mortgage choices but the total amount interest paid for the 15 year loan period

is quite less. Nevertheless, I chose this mortgage loan plan because I want to pay my mortgage

faster while I enjoy the comfort of lining in this home.

In conclusion, the decision to choose the 15-year mortgage plan over the 20-year mortgage and

30-year mortgage plans has impacted greatly on my monthly gross salary as 63.29% of my salary

will be used to pay off the loan for the next 15 years. This means that I am only left with 36.1%

of my monthly gross salary to spend on other expenses. 5 MAT 110 FINANCIAL LITERACY PROJECT WORKSHEET Fall 2015
