How much home can I afford?

A good starting point for answering this question lies in your monthly gross income. Experts vary in their statements but generally speaking, start with 28% of your gross monthly income. E.g., if you make $4000 a month, your mortgage, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance and PMI should be no more than $1120.

MoneyUnder30 has a detailed analysis including Dave Ramsey’s more conservative approach (namely he uses take home income not gross).

President Taft on property ownership

“Next to the right of liberty, the right of property is the most important individual right guaranteed by the Constitution and the one which, united with that of personal liberty, has contributed more to the growth of civilization than any other institution established by the human race.”

– William Howard Taft

Definitely some food for thought.Ā  I wonder what President Taft would have had to say about the Kelo decision?
