Task 2
Pattison family considers the opportunity to finance the purchase of their first $500 thousand worth
single-family house in Santa Rosa, CA. To qualify for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, the down
payment should be 10% of the purchase price. To accumulate money for the down payment, Mr.
Pattison plans to invest $35,000 in the stock portfolio that earns 7.65% per annum. Assume that Mr.
Pattison reinvests annual gains at the same interest rate as the initial investment. How much money
will Mr. Pattison accumulate with this investment within five years? Is the initial investment
amount sufficient to accumulate in five years the required down payment under the above
mortgage? Round your answers to the nearest dollar. Show your work.
Answer:
$35,000.00 * 0.0765 = $2,677.5 annual gains
$2,677.5 *5years = $13,387.50 5year gains
$35,000.00+ $ 13,387.50 =$ 48,387.50 accumulated investment for 5years.
The initial investment amount of $48,387.50 is not sufficient to accumulate in five years because
it is lesser than the required down payment $50,000.00 for the mortgage.
