A facility for a production plant can be purchased for 155,000 with a down payment of 25,000. Consider the following two options
(1) Option 1; getting a new standard mortgage with a 7.5% APR and a 30-year term.
(2) Option 2; Assuming the seller's old mortgage which has an interest rate of 5.5% APR a remaining term of 25 years ( the original term was 30 years) a remaining balance of 97,218 and payments of 597 per month. You can obtain a second or the remaining balance (32,782) from your credit at 9% APR with a 10 year repayment period?

ii. Compute the monthly payments for each option over the life of the mortgage?
