Do you no about the GA Dream program? It is down payment assistance. Great program. Also there is the first time home buyer tax credit plus the tax credits offered by the State of GA. If you have not gotten pre-qualified would be happy to recommend some great lenders. Let me know if you need to find a house. There are some great deals in the Acworth / Kennesaw area as well as out places around. Let me know if I can help.

Of course, you'd have to factor in your property taxes and insurance for the total monthly amount.
You would have to add to that your monthly insurance and real estate taxes which are different for each individual property.
You can contact a Realtor in the area of your interest to get a range of how much the taxes would be.
Hope this was helpful.
