What happens to the monthly mortgage payment if you adjust the amortization period?
By increasing the amortization period, the monthly mortgage payment will decrease. With an increase in the amortization period, there is more time to pay off the loan which results in lower monthly payments.

What happens when you adjust the cap rate?
The higher the cap rate, the lower the value, and the lower the cap rate, the higher the value.
