Renting Your Residence Advantages Mobility Fewer responsibilities Lower costs initially More amenities Disadvantages Few financial benefits Restricted lifestyle Cost of renting - deposits Legal concerns of a lease
Largest Physical Capital Investment Made by a Family is a HOUSE. Home Ownership rates 2012: US = 65.4% (lowest since 1997) Utah = 71.5% Since 1900, home ownership has been in excess of 40% in the U.S.
The Percentage of Families Owning Homes Over Time %
Housing Prices are determined by Supply & Demand Demand Average household size down Average income up Availability of substitutes down Life cycle stage of housing Childhood home, apartment, starter home, family home, empty nest home, retirement home, institutionalization or back to family, burial vault Supply Business cycle
Advantages of Owning Pride of ownership American dream/norm Reduced income taxes deduct property taxes deduct mortgage interest
Advantages of Owning Build an equity pay down the loan price appreciation Builds your credit rating Forced savings-portion of mortgage payment goes toward building up equity. Hedge against inflation Lifestyle flexibility can express your individuality (continued)
Disadvantages of Owning Financial risk need down payment home prices could drop Opportunity cost of money tied up in purchase. Limited mobility can take time to sell Higher living costs maintenance repairs & improvements utilities & insurance real estate taxes
Renting vs. Owning Your Home Based on cash flow, renters appear to win After taxes and appreciation, owners usually win WHO PAYS MORE:
1. What is the time period over which the household plans to own/rent? 2. What are the one-time fixed costs associated with purchasing the home? down payment closing costs (e.g., points, fees) Do you pay these costs if you are renting? A Cost-Benefit Approach (CBA) to the home ownership decision
3. What are the recurring (i.e., monthly) NET costs associated with owning compared to renting? How much more does it cost you to own than to rent every single month? You want to get that money back at the end… Sum of owning costs (mortgage payment, property taxes, hazard insurance, operating and maintenance expenses) minus tax savings Sum of renting costs (rent, operating expenses) 4. What will the outstanding loan balance be at the end of the time period? You have to pay off your loan when you sell 5. What will the estimated selling costs be at the end of the time period? You need to pay a realtor, and you want to get those dollars back A Cost-Benefit Approach (CBA) to the home ownership decision
6. Place all of these costs into future value dollars using 3% real interest rate Remember, all of our dollars have to be at one point in time – we are putting all of our dollars in to the future One-time costs (because these costs are one-time costs): FV=PV(1+r) n Recurring costs (because these costs happen every single month): Loan balance (already in future dollars; do not need to use a formula): Selling costs: Add up the one-time costs, recurring costs, loan balance, and selling costs, for the total costs expressed in future value terms This equals the minimum required future value of the home, or the break even price This is how much you have to sell your home for in the future in order to get back all of the dollars that you have spent A Cost-Benefit Approach (CBA) to the home ownership decision
7. Compute the interest rate This interest rate is the annual rate of appreciation that will have to occur if you are to break even on purchasing a house rather than renting for n years. This converts the dollar amount into an interest rate, so that you can compare your housing investment with other types of investments A Cost-Benefit Approach (CBA) to the home ownership decision
DECISION RULE - If the forecasted rate of housing appreciation is greater than the calculated interest rate, then economic benefits of home ownership outweigh the economic costs. So, buy the house If the forecasted housing appreciation rate is less than the calculated interest rate, then the economic costs of home ownership outweigh the economic benefits. So, rent
Example Original Purchase Price = $100,000 1. Time period = 8 years 2. One-time fixed costs: Down Payment = $10,000 Closing Costs = $3,000 Total = __________ 3. Recurring Net costs Sum of owning costs – tax savings = $1200 Sum of renting costs = $900 Net Costs = $1200 - $900 = _______ 4. Loan balance: $81,900 (get from amortization table) 5. Selling Costs: $6,000
6. FV of one-time costs = FV=13000(1+.03) 8 FVA of recurring costs (with monthly compounding) = =$16,468 = $32,504 Example
6. Now, add up all of the future costs: FV FVA Loan Balance Selling Costs = $136,872 ($16,468 + $32,504 + $81,900 + $6,000) Example
Decision = if forecasted housing appreciation rates are higher than 4%, you should buy this house Example

For example, a $150,000 loan for 30 years at 9 percent would require a payment of $1,206.93 [($150.000/1,000) x 8.0462]; over 15 years it would require a payment of $1,521.41.

How do households finance the purchase of a house? Down payment typically 10% of selling price, but 20% is the magic number Mortgage loan to pay the seller the difference between the purchase price and the down payment Mortgage choices impact the economic cost of a home
Conventional fixed rate, amortized 5, 10 or 20 percent down 15, 20 or 30 years of fixed payments Government guaranteed Veterans Administration Federal Housing Administration Adjustable rate mortgages varies with the prime rate but has a rate cap Type of Mortgages
Graduated payment payments start lower and go up for persons whose income will increase Balloon fixed monthly payments plus one large payment, usually after 3, 5 or 7 years Growing equity payment increases to allow loan to be paid off more quickly (continued)
Type of Mortgages Shared appreciation borrower agrees to share appreciated value of the home with the lender Home equity loans a second mortgage home is collateral and interest may be tax deductible Reverse a loan based on the home equity Refinancing (continued)
Economic Advantages and Disadvantages of Fixed Rate Mortgage? Advantages: future housing costs are known with relative certainty (only possible changes are property taxes, insurance, and utilities) can choose 15-year, 20-year, 25-year, 30-year, 40- year, or 50-year loan time interest deductions from income taxes are high during the early years of the loan
Economic Advantages and Disadvantages of Fixed Rate Mortgage? Disadvantages: more difficult for young households (with lower incomes) to qualify Locked in to the fixed rate. Tax advantages lessen over time (typically at the point where household income and the marginal tax rate are both rising)
Fixed rate FHA or VA mortgage Federally insured mortgages If the borrower defaults, the lender still gets the money. Advantages: interest rates frequently lower on FHA or VA mortgages than on conventional mortgages qualifying is typically easier FHA/VA loans are assumable down payment requirements are typically lower
Fixed rate FHA or VA mortgage Disadvantages: loan limits (2008 = $729,750 in SLC, Summit, and Tooele Counties; $323,750 in Utah County; $271,050 most everywhere else) insurance fees (1.5% upfront, + 0.50% per year of the loan amount – can be financed) typically pay additional points (one-time, fixed costs) Rates on 10/30/08 30 year fixed is 6.46%, with 0.7 points 15 year fixed is 6.19%, with 0.7 points May take longer to process
Self-amortizing, Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) Interest rate and monthly payment are both variable (e.g., adjustable). Example: loan amount = $200,000 interest rate = 6.0% initially time period = 30 years initial monthly payment: $1199.10
More about the ARM interest rate Index - market interest rate that is not directly controlled by the lender. It is used to initially set and periodically adjust the interest rate on the loan Spread - the amount that is added to the index to arrive at the the ARM interest rate.
More about the ARM interest rate Frequency of rate change - how often the lending institution can change the ARM interest rate. Rate cap - limitations on either the increase or the decrease in the ARM interest rate that can occur at a point in time. Frequency of payment change - how often monthly payments can change (typically the same as frequency of rate change -- if not, there is the possibility of negative amortization)
Economic Advantages and Disadvantages of an Adjustable Rate Mortgage? Advantages: Initial interest rates are typically lower If you are buying when mortgage rates are high, but expected to fall in the future Disadvantages: Greater uncertainty about what future mortgage payments will be
Graduated Payment Mortgage (GPM) Interest rate is fixed but the monthly payment rises over time -- supposedly as the household’s income rises. Example: loan amount = $200,000 interest rate = 7.0% time period = 30 years monthly payment at first is $800 (rather than $1330.60) After 2 years, payment goes to $1000 After another 2 years, payment goes to $1200 Then payment is $1553.60 for the rest of the loan (24 years)
Interest Payments on a Graduated Payment Mortgage Month 1: payment = $800.00 interest owed: $200,000(.07/12) = $1166.67 loan increased by: $1166.67 - $800 = $366.67 Month 2: payment = $800.00 interest owed: $200,366.67(.07/12) = $1168.81 loan increased by: $1168.81 - $800 = $368.81 This is an example of negative amortization
Economic Advantages and Disadvantages of a Graduated Payment Mortgage? Advantages: Easier to qualify for lower income households lower monthly payments early in the mortgage Disadvantages: Loan amount is larger than with a conventional, fixed rate mortgage Payments will be higher in the later stages of the loan (must be confident that income will rise or else this may present a problem)
Reverse Equity Mortgages (REM) A reverse mortgage is a loan against your home that you do not have to pay back for as long as you live there. It can be paid to you all at once, as a regular monthly advance, or at times and in amounts that you choose. You pay the money back plus interest when you die, sell your home, or permanently move out of your home. Reverse mortgage loans typically require no repayment for as long as you live in your home. Your house must be paid off (or close to it) You must be over 62
REMs Advantages: Way to access your home equity without having the burden of repayment Creates income Disadvantages: Reduces the value of your estate Your home must be sold after your death to repay the REM, if liquid assets are not available to pay off the REM
Interest Only Your payment only covers the interest owed on the loan Then you have a balloon payment after a specified # of years (e.g. 7 or 12) with the principal balance due Or your loan will amortize over a shorter amount of time E.g. 40 yr IO – pay IO for 10 years, and then amortized over 30 yrs Advantages: Lower monthly payments Maybe good for rental properties and/or high-equity growth areas Disadvantages: Negative amortization may occur No gain in equity from principal reduction Very risky
Summary: Economic Costs and Economic Benefits of Various Mortgage Instruments Depend Upon... Life cycle stage Business cycle stage Risk tolerance Liquidity needs
How do those mortgages stack up?

How to reduce the amount of interest paid on your mortgage Pay extra principal every month Pay next month’s principal this month Pays off a 30-year mortgage in about 15 years and 8 months Pay bi-weekly Pay 26 half payments a year, or 13 monthly payments Cuts about 7 years off of 30 year mortgage Pay semi-monthly Pay 24 half payments a year Cuts about 5 years off of 30 year mortgage, without ever paying extra
Is this a good deal? Currently 8 years left on a mortgage, paying 7.35% with a payment of $642 Refinance to a 15 year mortgage at 5.25% with a payment of $450 Answer = NO Under current payment plan, will pay 642(8)(12) = $61,632 over next 8 years Under refinance, will pay 450(15)(12) = $81,000 over next 15 years More out of pocket, and more opportunity costs
