The $470 payment does not include the taxes, insurance or home owners association fee. This home is currently under contract. It is always easier working with a Realtor who has access to real time updates on properties. If you are interested in searching for a home please feel free to contact me.

With interest rates so low, buying now is a good option. However, taxes and association dues usually take a bigger chunk of your expenses than a mortgage payment in the 100,00 range. There are some associations with low association dues. A good Realtor can create a search for you that will take all those factors into consideration. Give a call if you want a coach for the process. Or schedule a sit-down where we can review the factors. Mary Zentz, RE/MAX Suburban 847-707-9507

The $470 a month is just the mortgage payment and makes some assumptions about down payment % and credit score. Taxes on the property are an additional $225 per month. This condo also comes with a homeowner assessment of $231 a month. Insurance is an additional fee. Assuming you put 20% down, your monthly payments are going total about $1100 a month on this unit.

If you are looking to purchase a home, one of the primary things you want to do is talk to a mortgage broker (if you have not already). Have them help you determine what your budget for housing should be. Most Realtors know of a few mortgage brokers that can assist you.
