Uncover Your Ideal Home Budget
With a purchase as large as a home, there are many considerations when determining if you can afford a house payment. You’ll need to consider your monthly income, any debt you owe, annual property taxes and insurance, the life of the loan, available down payment, and interest rate. If you’re unsure about insurance or property tax costs, you can get a quick quote from your insurance agent.
Each of these elements influences your monthly payment, so estimate them as best you can. It’s wise to overestimate your costs and underestimate your income. Should you find more financial flexibility than expected, you can fine-tune your budget or save the surplus for the future.
