Alex Guadet of Forrest City, Arkansas, has been renting a small, two-bedroom house for several years. He pays \$900 per month in rent for the home and \$300 per year in property and liability insurance. The owner of the house wants to sell it, and Alex is considering making an offer. The owner wants \$120,000 for the property, but Alex thinks he could get the house for \$115,000 and use his \$29,000 in 3 percent certificates of deposit that are ready to mature for the down payment. Alex has talked to his banker and could get a 4.5 percent mortgage loan for 25 years to finance the remainder of the purchase price. The banker advised Alex that he would reduce his debt principal by \$2,200 during the first year of the loan. Property taxes on the house are \$1,800 per year. Alex estimates that he would need to upgrade his property and liability insurance to \$800 per year and would incur about \$1,500 in costs the first year for maintenance. Property values are increasing at about 2.5 percent per year in the neighborhood. Alex is in the 25 percent marginal tax bracket.
