Funny how the lending bank is prudent when it comes to protecting its interests (in this case a house and lot) while the actual owners of a real estate property is not too keen on protecting their own assets.
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.
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.
