Step 4: Getting a Mortgage Loan

How much of my income should I spend on housing? As a rule, your housing costs shouldn’t exceed 30% of your take-home income.

Your monthly housing payment is made up of your mortgage principle and interest, property taxes, insurance, ground lease fee and a stewardship fee and maintenance.

There’s no easy way to determine what upkeep will cost you, but most homeowners spend 1%–4% of their property’s value on maintenance every year.
