In this module, we will apply everything we have learned so far to explore how home purchasing works. Homes normally have much lower interest rates (as of this course development, it’s sitting around 3.5% for a 30 yr mortgage); however, the term is much longer than for other types of purchases, where the rates are normally higher. Here you will be able to explore how compound interest accumulates over time and learn how to calculate the total cost of financing, which may certainly be surprising.

Last week you reviewed the financial concepts you learned in this course and decided on a topic that is interesting to you. Now you’re going to have the opportunity to write a blog post on a topic that interests you. Remember that this topic must be relevant to the material that we’ve learned in the course and should include at least two concepts/formulas you’ve learned in the course.
Here are a few guidelines while writing your blog post:
Your blog post should be at least 1000 words. Ideally your post should not exceed 1500 words; otherwise, you may lose the interest of your readers.

Your blog post should be written in multiple paragraphs. Each paragraph should have its own main idea.
