Ask Geri: True Cost of Borrowing (Part 2): Diminishing Balance Amortization

Share the #GYMBFF:

Not all loan providers offer this option. But from time to time I encounter this option especially for mortgage / home loans. If Juan is presented such an option and s/he can afford the amortization using diminishing balance, s/he should go for it to save some more on interest payments.

The True Cost of Borrowing We Don’t Care Much About

Share the #GYMBFF:

Juan doesn’t pay much attention to the cost of borrowing. He cares more on the monthly amortization (short-term thinking) rather than the total costs involved (longer-term thinking) And that costs Juan much. Ouch.

Meet Viya and Why Owning a Car Is (Not) An Expense

Share the #GYMBFF:

Viya is lodged as an asset and a liability in my personal SALN. The asset side, which is the car value, I depreciate regularly (I read somewhere that normally, cars depreciate 20% in price by year 1, 10% for years 2 to 6 and 5% for years 7 to 10. Which leaves you 10% salvage value by year 10).

Ask Geri: Why Do Banks Sell Repossessed Property & Vehicle At Lower Price?

Share the #GYMBFF:

Banks do not lend 100% of the appraised value of the collateral, they usually put a cap to it, like 70% or 80%. This cap is the LTV ratio requirement. So if one is borrowing money to purchase a PHP1M car, the bank will just lend PHP800k or 80% of the value.

Ask Geri: I Have Extra Cash To Invest: Car or Condo?

Share the #GYMBFF:

Both options above are illiquid and very long term commitments. Meaning if you change your mind, or have a need for cash beyond your emergency funds, it will be more difficult to sell these items to have cash.
