Posted by chrystal on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 7:38pm.

You are considering purchasing a 12,000 square feet (4,000 sf. per floor), three story office building for $1,250,000 with closing to be on May 12. The top and bottom floors are preleased for $24 per sq, ft. annually and the middle floor for $20 annually. Land costs are estimated at 10% of the value of the property. You expect rents to increase by 7% per year. You project that your vacancy and collection losses will be about 6%. You expect that operating expenses will be 35% of the adjusted gross income. The Friendly Federal Savings Bank has agreed to lend to you at a 9.5% annual interest rate with an amortization period of 30 years paid monthly. The loan will have only a term of 10 years. The amount of the loan is going to be based upon a 1.5 Debt Service Coverage Ratio for the first year's NOI. The bank is going to charge three points. At the end of year 3 you expect to refinance the property under the same terms as the original loan except for a reduction in the interest rate to 8% and a points charge of four points. (The new loan is based upon the year 4 NOI!) Your accountant has advised you that for this investment analysis, you should use expect a 31% marginal tax rate. You expect to sell the property at the end of the fifth year. The sales price is expected to be based upon an 11.5% capitalization rate of the year six NOI. Sales expenses are projected at 8%. You have concluded that your cost of equity capital is 10%. ****Finally, be sure that you DO NOT enter a space before, after, or in the middle of your answers. Entering a space will cause the answer to be scored incorrectly.****
