First, determine the cost of the first parcel as follows:
3.5 acres x \$2,000 per acre = \$7,000.
Next, understand that 1 sq. mi. = 640 acres. Now, apply these figures as follows:
640 acres / 2 = 320 acres in the 2nd parcel;
320 x \$2,000 = \$640,000 for the 2nd parcel;
\$7,000 + \$640,000 = \$647,000.
Therefore, Murphy had to pay \$647,000 for both parcels.

Harry the Homeowner purchases a new home, financed with a conventional, amortized loan for \$67,000. The interest rate on the loan is 8% payable over 30 years. Harry's first monthly payment is \$500. What is the loan balance after Harry's first payment?
Select one:
A.
\$60,000.00
B.
\$64,557.34
C.
\$65,088.46
D.
\$66,946.67
First, you must calculate the annual interest as follows:
\$67,000 x 0.08 = \$5,360.
Next, calculate the monthly interest rate as follows:
\$5,360/12 = \$446.66.
Next, deduct Harry's monthly payment from the monthly interest:
\$500 - \$446.66 = \$53.34.
Now, we know that \$53.34 of Harry's monthly payment is applied toward his principal. Therefore:
\$67,000 (loan amount) - \$53.34 (first month's principal deduction) = \$66,946.67.

Real estate taxes for each fiscal year are due on June 30th. The seller hadn't yet paid taxes because the property sells and closes on April 15th (before the bill is due). If the annual property taxes are \$2,580, what is the settlement sheet entry for the proration of taxes??
Select one:
A.
B.
C.
Debit to seller: \$537.50
D.
Credit to seller: \$537.50
The buyer will get a credit since taxes for the year have NOT been paid. When the bill comes, the buyer will be in possession of the property and will have to pay the full amount, though he has only lived there for 2-1/2 months (1/2 Apr, May, and June). As such, the seller is DEBITED (charged) and the buyer is CREDITED for the previous months:
Monthly Taxes = \$2,580 / 12 = \$215
Buyer's total taxes = \$215 x 2.5 = \$537.50
Reimbursement = \$2,580 - \$537.5 = \$2,042.50 credit to buyer
The seller would have a debit for the same amount, but that is NOT one of your choices.

A developer owns four parcels of land. He plans to sell one parcel for construction of an office building. The building plans will require 2 acres, which will include the actual building, landscaping, and parking. Which of the following is the smallest parcel that would accommodate this construction?
Select one:
A.
Parcel A: 83 feet x 950 feet
B.
Parcel B: 102 feet x 840 feet
C.
Parcel C: 120 feet x 860 feet
D.
Parcel D: 140 feet x 900 feet
First calculate the area needed for the construction:
2 acres x 43,560 (sq. ft. per acre) - 87,120 sq. ft.
Then calculate the square footage of each of the lots. 83 x 950 = 78,850; This lot is too small. 102 x 840 = 85,680; This lot is too small. 120 x 860 =103,200; This lot is large enough. 140 x 900 =126,000; This lot is large enough. The question asks which is the smallest lot that would accommodate the construction. Therefore, the answer is Parcel C.

The correct answer is: Parcel C: 120 feet x 860 feet
A developer has 25 acres, which he plans to sub-divide into 1/2 acre building lots. Of the total tract, he must dedicate five percent for streets and 15% for recreation and open space. Each lot will sell for \$19,560. What is the developer's potential income?
Select one:
A.
\$978,000
B.
\$789,375
C.
\$782,400
D.
\$391,200
- First, understand that the total number of acres to develop is 25.
- Next, deduct 20% (5% for streets, 15% for recreation), or 5 acres. Now, you know that the number of acres to sell is 20 (25-5).
- Then, multiply the 20 acres by 2 (because these are half acre lots), for a total of 40 lots.
- Finally, multiply 40 lots by \$19,560 = \$782,400. If you forget that these were 1/2 acre lots and multiplied by 20, you may have selected \$391,200.
