An investor obtained a fully amortizing mortgage 4 years ago for $100,000 at 12 percent for 30 years. Mortgage rates have dropped, so that a fully amortizing 25-year loan can be obtained at 10 percent. There is no prepayment penalty on the mortgage balance of the original loan, but 3 points will be charged on the new loan and other closing costs will be $2000. All payments are monthly.
