Thomas Hortm…, Home Buyer in Byron, GA

Help the community by answering this question:


The amount listed here is for principal and interest. This does not include taxes or insurance as not all loans will require you to pay these inside of the loan. The actual payment on a home like this if purchased with FHA financing with 3.5% down payment will be closer to $1400 per month.

If you are looking at FHA and 3.5% down payment, a very rough way to figure out your payment would be sales price divided by 120. Wondering how much you can afford to buy? Take what you want your monthly payment to be and multiple it by 120. i.e - if you want to keep your mortgage payment at $1000 per month, then 1000 x 120 = $120,000 purchase price.

Best of luck,

Hi Thomas,
I looked at the lisitng from your link and it indicated a $177,000 List Price. Right below the List Price, Trulia estimated a $793/month mortgage payment. I did not see $500/month inidcated anywhere on the page.
