Calculator Problem – 02/23/2015

You can purchase a farm with 5% down, 45% of the purchase price with a FSA loan at 1.5% amortized over 40 years (with a maximum FSA loan of $300,000) and 50% of the purchase price with bank loan at 5% with 10 years fixed, amortized over 20 years.  If you wanted to maximize the FSA portion of the loan, how much should the purchase price be?
