His latest tally shows that he still owes \$4,000 on a home improvement loan (monthly payments of \$125); he is making \$85 monthly payments on a personal loan with a remaining balance of \$750; he has a \$2,000, secured, single-payment loan that’s due late next year; he has a \$70,000 home mortgage on which he’s making \$750 monthly payments; he still owes \$8,600 on a new car loan (monthly payments of \$375); and he has a \$960 balance on his MasterCard (minimum payment of \$40), a \$70 balance on his Exxon credit card (balance due in 30 days), and a \$1,200 balance on a personal line of credit (\$60 monthly payments). Use Worksheet 7.1 to prepare an inventory of Brad’s consumer debt. Find his debt safety ratio given that his take-home pay is \$2,500 per month. Would you consider this ratio to be good or bad?
