2 Question 1 (20%) Ad Jansen just purchased a house at one of the canal streets in downtown Amsterdam. He takes on a €500,000 mortgage at ABN-Amro bank. The quoted rate is 5%, based on quarterly compounding. Ad makes monthly payments to the bank. ABN-Amro is willing to give Ad a so-called “interest-only” mortgage. This means that Ad will only pay for the interest and he will not be making any payments towards the principal of the mortgage. While this means he will not be reducing his principle outstanding, Ad expects the price of his house to increase such that at some time in the future he can sell the house and pay off his entire mortgage at once. a) Calculate Ad’s monthly mortgage payment. Three years later, the housing market has collapsed and Ad realizes he will not be able to repay his entire mortgage if he would sell his house. Therefore, he decides to change the type of his mortgage and start paying towards his principal outstanding as well as for interest. ABN-Amro offers him an interest rate of 4.5%, based on semi-annual compounding. b) Calculate the new effective monthly interest rate. c) If Ad is able to pay ABN-Amro a total amount of €2,500 per month, how long will it take him to pay off his entire mortgage?
