Re: Home loan chances

If you earn 205k a year, you would max out at about a 820k mortgage if your DTI is in good shape.

Re: Home loan chances

Our DTI right now is about 13.5 percent. That's without adding the house payment in.

 

Perhaps we should be thinking a little bigger than $350,000. Maybe in the $500,000 range.

Re: Home loan chances

Yep I think so...I would! LOL! I am in the process of purchasing a $347,900 home and I make $96,000 a year. Your income and DTI allow you to go a lot bigger if you want. The max home price I was preapproved for was $360,000.

Re: Home loan chances

Re: Home loan chances

JM-AM, there were homes to die for in the $450,000 range! If we just made a little more money, I would have loved to buy one of those homes. In Colorado, you can get a huge house for $450,000! Our home at $347,900 is really nice though with 3500 sq ft.

Re: Home loan chances

Same here in Dallas, 450k get you about the same size home as 300k but it is upgraded to the max.

 

I would love to have a kitchen with 2 islands, a media room and a sub zero fridge lol.

Re: Home loan chances

I just looked at the listing for our home and it is 3713 sq ft. 2518 sq ft is finished. The rest is a unfinished walkout basement.

Re: Home loan chances

Lol

Yes the extra luxuries are nice but not always needed.

More house to maintain. More house to clean. Higher taxes. Higher insurance.

But I do know the benefits of the luxuries also. Smiley Happy
