Long mortgage. Tempting, but is it profitable? Source: New programs that have appeared on the Russian mortgage market, allow the borrower to borrow up to 40 – 50 years. At first glance, pretty tempting offer. Let us try to consider this proposal in more detail. Thus, the main claim of the creditor: at the end of the age of the borrower's payments should be no older than a certain threshold (eg 75 years). It follows that if borrower takes out a loan for a period of 50 years, his age should not be older than 25 years of age, at 40, then 35 years. Seductiveness of this proposal is the possible reduction of the monthly payment and stretch the term of mortgage, and respectively to increase the maximum loan amount at the same level of income verification.

Is it correct that statement? Let's try not to be unfounded, we carry out the calculations. Take CALCULATIONS example, a mortgage loan of $ 3 million rubles. Calculate the amount of monthly payments for different periods (from 10 to 50 years) and for different rates (from 8 to 14%). It should be noted that in practice the proposals for a long mortgage imply ruble rates at 13-14% per annum. Visual results of calculations of scary. What do we see? The longer the loan, the less pronounced reduction in the amount of monthly payment.

At the term of the loan over 25 years is reduction is almost imperceptible. And with credit in 30 years? Notice the difference in monthly payments of a 25-year and 30-year loan is about 600-1100 rubles. And for 30 years and 50 years – only 100-500 rubles a month. A similar increase results and increase the loan amount double or triple. Accordingly, it does not exceed 1500-2000 rubles. However, the slower the reduction of monthly payments, the faster the various rates (from 8 to 14%), and thus the amount of money overpayment on the loan. The conclusion suggests itself – the man who took a 50-year mortgage will pay as a percentage nearly twice as much than the one who took credit for 30 years. In numbers, it looks like this – the difference in overpayment for a loan of 3 RR is more than 8.2 million rubles! (At a rate of 14% per annum). The problem of Russia's long-term lending (as opposed to foreign programs) is the inability to transfer the debt on the credit for children, all based only on the borrower's age limit. From all the above can make an unequivocal conclusion – the best term mortgage is a term of 20-25 years. When absolutely necessary – for 30 years. Longer loans designed for people unfamiliar with the arithmetic. Source:
