3. Consider an apartment complex investment with a $500,000 purchase price. On a before-tax basis, should the investor buy the project? Why or why not?

E. Depreciable basis = 85% of the purchase price
F. Future sale price = $550,000
G. Holding period = 60 months
H. Marginal tax rate = 28%; Capital gains rate = 15%
I. Require rate of return = 16%

Problem Set #3: The Refinance Decision


Five years ago you originated a $50,000 mortgage loan at 12% for 30 years with monthly compounding. Because rates are currently 10%, you are considering refinancing the unpaid mortgage balance of your existing loan for 25 years with monthly compounding. Your current loan has a 2% prepayment penalty and the new lender will charge you $1,000 in refinancing costs. Assume your opportunity cost of capital equals 12%. Should you refinance if the new loan is held to maturity?
