I was wondering if you could answer me the following question. We are looking at a $435,000 property. The mortgage info. with the listing states that with 25% down($108,750) at a 5 year, 2.3% variable rate amortized over 25 years, the payments would be $1441 per month. Could you tell me what the payments would be with 50% down? I would appreciate your reply asap. Thanks.
