The scenario is designed to help you determine and evaluate the payment amount of a car loan and a mortgage, based on the assumption that your household income is $36,000 per year or $3,000 per month.
Based on your income, you may spend 28% of your monthly income on housing, and 10% on a car loan. You are to put a 3% down payment on the house and a 10% down payment on the car.
Using Microsoft Excel, address the following issues:
1. What is the maximum car payment and mortgage payment you can afford with the following conditions: your monthly household income, 10% for the car payment, and 28% for the mortgage payments?
2. Assume a 10% down payment on the car and a 3% down payment on the house. Also, assume that you can get financing for the car at 7% for 60 months, and the house can be financed at 5% for 30 years. How much could you spend on the car and the house? You must submit your calculations in a Microsoft Excel document showing how answers were reached.
3. Create a complete amortization schedule for the car, using the information in questions 1 and 2.
4. Discuss the distributions of principal, interest and the balance over the life of the loan.
