Finding your Maximum House Price

Provided by: 

However, you may want a particular monthly payment and would like to know what the highest house price would be for that particular payment. Let's say you are renting at $800 per month, and you can afford a few hundred more per month to own the home. You want to know what house price would be equivalent to paying $1000 monthly.

You will need to consider some of familiar subjects:

1) Your down payment. This is how much money you will pay to the real estate when you buy the home. The remainder of the sales price will be the sum of the loan.

2) How long it will take the loan to be paid off.

3) The loan's interest rate.

4) Your property's tax rate, based on your location.

5) The insurance rate.

What is different is that you consider the $1000 monthly payment and determine the house price, rather than the other way around. This makes your home purchase work with your standard of living. You know what you are spending on rent, so it is good to start determining what price you could own for by investing your rent.

If the homes in your area cost more than what your rent permits, you can increase your house price by determining how much more you can spare per month. Among the benefits of owning a home are mortgage interest deductions and possible appreciation, but don't worry about that right now. For the time being, you should start to think about what monthly payments you could easily afford.
