You will first need to research the housing market and compare the values of two similar homes in two different areas. The two homes must be extremely similar in structure size, land size, year built, and additions such as swimming pools or barns. Then, based upon your findings, you will select one of the homes to purchase, calculate a monthly payment on the mortgage note, compare this information with what you can potentially afford, and address additional questions related to home ownership. House #1 House #2 1. Go to the following website: http://www.realtor.com/. 2. Enter a ZIP code. 3. Chose Homes for Sale. 4. Enter your price range (the minimum and maximum amount you want to spend). 5. Enter the specifications (number of bedrooms and number of baths). 6. Hit Search. 7. Find a home that you like or would consider. 8. Go to the U.S. Census website: http://www.census.gov. 9. Click on the American Factfinder tab on the left of the screen. 10. Under the Fact Access to Information title, enter the ZIP code of the house you found. 11. You will get lots of data on demographics like age, gender, family size, education, income, and crime rates. 12. Find out the price per square foot for the house you found. The goal now is to find a very similar house (age, lot size, square footage, number of rooms, and number of bathrooms). Repeat Steps 1 through 12. In Step 2, pick another ZIP code 20+ miles away from the first ZIP code you picked for the first house. In Step 5, pick the same specification and choose a house that was built in the same year or so as the first house. Also, try your best to find a house that has the same lot size and square footage as the first house. Construct a table showing a comparison of data (including location, square footage, total price, price per square foot, and specifications), for both houses and then write a 3–4-page paper detailing the following: 1. What is the logic for choosing your two ZIP codes? Is the selection based upon work location, family location, good schools, and so on? 2. What is the logic behind choosing the size and specifications of each house? 3. Compare the total price of the two homes. 4. Compare the price per square foot for each house. 5. Compare the demographic data (referring to the location and ZIP code) of each house. Based upon these data, try to explain the similarities and differences in pricing for each home. 6. Select the home that you will purchase and explain the reasoning behind your selection. Assume that at least a 20% down payment is required. How much money would you need to have saved? After the down payment, what would be the purchase price of the home? 7. Assume the following: · Closing costs (including all potential loan origination, title, and closing fees) are $3,500. · You have been approved for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage note at a rate of 5.0%. Calculate the monthly payment for this loan. (It is recommended that you show your calculation.) 8. Usin.
