Hi Tee,

I'd find out the annual taxes in the area you are looking and divide by 12. I'd also use around $750 per year and divide by 12 for the insurance. This should give you a good idea. You then can add these numbers to your P and I payment (that you get from using a mortgage calculator on line). You will also have to figure in PMI (Private Mortgage insurance). This varies depending on if you do a conventional or FHA loan, how much you put down, your loan size, and your credit score ,etc. You could probably assume around $150 give or take.
Always feel free to call or email with any further questions.
I'd be happy to help.

Hello Tee, the answer depends on the value of your home, the area you are in, insurance carrier. Roughly 15-35%.
