You are considering purchasing an apartment for $1,400,000
which contains 30 one bedroom apartments and 10 two bedroom
apartments. Land is estimated to be 18% of the purchase price.
The one bedroom apartments are expected to rent for $425 per
month and the two bedroom apartments are expected to rent for
$575 per month. You expect rents to increase by 6% per year.
You project that your vacancy and collection losses will be about
4%. You expect that operating expenses will be 32% of the
adjusted gross income. The Friendly Federal Savings Bank has
agreed to lend to you at a 8.25% annual interest rate with an
amortization period of 30 years paid monthly. The loan will have
only a term of 10 years. The amount of the loan is going to be
based upon a 1.3 Debt Service Coverage Ratio for the first year's
NOI. The bank is going to charge three points. You expect to sell
the property at the end of the fifth year. The sales price is
expected to be based upon an 11.2% capitalization rate of the year
six NOI. Sales expenses are projected at 6.5%.
