How do you calculate the actual rate on an 80/15 loan? (with 5% down payment)

Is it (.8 x rate 1)+(.15 x rate 2)?

thanks

That is correct. You are officially smarter than a 5th grader.

are you asking for the 'average rate' of the two rates?

I'm trying to figure out my avg weighted mortgage rate, since there are 2 loans involved.

In my calculation above, my totals only add up to .95 (.8+.15). Does this mean I'm not accounting for 5% of the loan? I'm confused. Do I need to change it so that the loans add up to a whole 1?

Figure out what your paying yearly in interest on each loan, add the interest together

Loan Amt1*Rate1= Yearly interest
+
Loan Amt2* rate 2= Yearly interest 2

=Total yearly interest

Take TYI from above and divide by total mortgage amount (add principal amounts of Mtg 1 and 2)

You should get a decimal at this point. Multiply the decimal by 100 to get your average percentage.

Been awhile, anyone want to confirm my math?

Basically you're weighting your interest rates

So you have [85/95 (Rate1) + 15/95 (Rate 2)]

So - if you had a rate of 6.5% on Loan 1, and a rate of 10% on loan 2:

= 0.894 x 0.065 + 0.157 (0.10)
= 0.05811 + 0.0157
= 0.07381
= 7.3%

Remeber that 95 is 100% of your loan amount, that's why you have to do 85/95 + 15/95 = 95/95 = 100%
