      • Fixed-rate, level pay (plain vanilla)
        • Term of loan is fixed (30 years is common in US)
        • Contract rate of interest is fixed for the life of the loan.
        • Payments (usually monthly) are constant for the term of the loan
        • The payments fully amortize the loan.
      • FHA, conventional, conforming, nonconforming, jumbo

  • 13. For Example
      • The monthly payments on a $187,000 loan written at 10% for 15 years is
    In Excel, you can use the financial function PMT(rate, nper, pv,fv,type)
  • 14. Mortgage Loan Payments
      • Each payment consists of
        • interest equal to i /12 times the amount of principal owing at the time the payment is due, and
        • scheduled principal repayment
      • Payments are calculated such that the interest due is paid first and then the remainder of the payment is used to reduce the principal owed.
      • A table listing the payments and how they are divided between interest and principal is called an amortization schedule.
  • 15. Amortization Schedule
      • For example, here are the first few lines of an amortization schedule for a 15-year, 10% fixed rate loan with an initial principal of $187,000
  • 16. Amortization Schedule
      • A better way to visualize the amortization process is to look at a graph of the payments
  • 17. Amortization Schedule
      • The principal balance remaining after any number of payments can be determined by constructing an amortization schedule or by employing the formula
  • 18. Amortization Schedule
      • The logic of this formula is that the principal balance remaining after s payments is always the present value of the remaining 12T-s payments discounted at the contract rate of interest
  • 19. Amortization Schedule
      • Graphically
  • 20. Mortgage Servicing

        • Collection and forwarding of payments
        • Administration of escrow accounts
      • Servicing fees

    This servicing annuity is worth about $5,450 at a 9.5% discount rate
  • 22. Prepayments
      • Payments made by borrowers in excess of their scheduled loan payments.
        • Entire (as when the house is sold or refinanced)
        • Partial (accelerated principal repayment)
      • Most prepayments are optional to the borrower
        • put option
      • Borrower incentives when rates
        • Rise
        • Fall
  • 23. For Example
      • Consider a mortgage thats been outstanding for two years and rates have fallen 2%
  • 24. Prepayments
      • To the extent that prepayments cannot be perfectly predicted, they create uncertainty about the term of mortgage loa
