This formula is only a guide and not to be construed as actual lending calculations.Contact your loan officer to determine more accurately what price range you should consider.
Lenders abide by certain ratios when calculating the loan amount their customers can qualify for and the ratios vary by lender and loan program. Many use 28% of your gross monthly income as the maximum allowed for your mortgage payment (principal/interest/taxes/insurance or PITI); for your total monthly debt, the ratio is 36%.
Total monthly expenses means PITI plus long-term debt (such as auto loans) and revolving/credit-card debt. Do not include other expenses such as groceries, utilities, clothing, tuition, etc., to calculate this ratio.

"We meet Keith 4 years ago. He was the only realtor in the west valley that would give us the time of day. Our search ended without buying a house. Through the years he kept up with us sending emails and a occasional call to see if we still wanted info. When our time was right to purchase a home Keith only showed us houses we could afford and the ones that met our requirements. We found our perfect home. He is a great guy with a great personality. We will always recommend him. "
