Assume the interest rate in the market is 11.5%. You want to buy a (small and old) house and you have three di?erent options of payment (you have 67.000 euros cash): (a) Today payment: 67.000 euros. (b) 12.000 euros each year with a initial payment today. (c) 22.000 euros today and then 7.000 euros each year (with initial payment next year), during 12 years. Which one is the most convenient for you?

In option b), how many years? 9 years? "Convenient" means "cheapest"?

Can we solve this problem, so, if b) is for 9 year? a) is 67000 b) is if 1200(1+ 11,5/100)^9 c) 22000 + 7000(1+11,5/100)^{121} Wich is smaller is most cheapest for us? or..

a: 67,000 b: 12,000 + 55,644.42 = 67,644.42 (PV of 7 annual payments of 12,000 @ 11.5% = 55,644.42) c: 22,000 + 44,384.08 = 66,384.08 (PV of 12 annual payments of 7,000 @ 11.5% = 44,384.0
