Mark is considering the purchase of a lot. He can buy the lot today and expects the price to rise to $15,000 at the end of 10 years. He believes that he should earn an investment yield of 10% annually on this investment. The asking price for the lot if $7,000. Should he buy it? What is the annual yield (internal rate of return) of the investment if Mark purchases the property for $7,000 and is able to sell it 10 years later for $15,000?
Because the present value of this investment is less than the $7,000 asking price for the lot, John should not buy it.
The calculation for internal rate of return is shown below.
