Total Buyer Ownership Cost. **Amortized loan:** i.      An amortized loan is a loan that requires interest payments to be made periodically. The period is typically one month for a home loan. When an individual makes the monthly payment, part of the payment is interest and part of the payment is a reduction in the loan amount. **Interest:** ii.     Interest is like rent on money iii.   If the borrower agrees to pay an annual interest rate of 12%, the monthly interest rate would be 6%/12 months = .5% per month. iv.   If the current monthly balance of the loan is $250,000, the interest calculation = \*        $250,000\*.5% = $1,250 v.    If your monthly payment sent to the banker (the creditor) = $1,348.99, then the two parts are: \*        $1,250 = Interest paid to Banker \*        $1,348.99 - $1,250 = $223.99 left over to reduce your current loan balance vi.   After the banker received your payment of $1,348.99, your current balance for your loan would = \*        $250,000 - $223.99= $224,776.01 **Amortization tables:** i.      An amortization table shows what part of a monthly loan payment (PMT) goes into the banker’s pocket as interest and what part is applied to the principal loan amount (Current Balance of Loan) for every payment.
