The baseline rule for homeowners, or the “rule of thumb” that most experts suggest, is that your mortgage does not exceed 30% of your income. Like many things when it comes to buying a home, however, there is more to this scenario than what the numbers tell. What those mortgage rates don’t include are all the countless expenses that come along with owning, maintaining, and caring for a home. That also means that just because a bank approves your loan, it doesn’t always mean that it is a home you can afford. So be sure you do all your math, that you understand the home-buying process, and that you get a home that doesn’t leave you broke.
