Understanding Your Mortgage Payment

Your monthly mortgage payment includes principal and interest, representing the borrowed amount and the lender's charge, respectively. Additionally, an escrow account may collect funds monthly for property taxes and homeowners insurance, ensuring your home is protected. Depending on your location and property, additional insurance for hazards like floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes may be required. Mortgage insurance is also added if your down payment is less than 20% of the home's purchase price.

Determining Your Housing Possibility

Follow the 28/36 percent rule to determine your housing affordability. This guideline suggests not spending more than 28 percent of your gross income on housing costs and not exceeding 36 percent on overall debt. For example, if your annual income is $60,000, your total monthly mortgage payment shouldn't exceed $1,400. While some loans allow a higher debt-to-income ratio, it's essential to consider other living expenses.

Tips to Lower Your Monthly Mortgage Payment

Consider these options to reduce your monthly mortgage payment:

  • Choose a longer loan term for a lower payment. It may result in more interest over time.
  • Opt for a less expensive home to decrease your mortgage amount.
  • Avoid PMI by making a down payment or achieving 20% equity.
  • Shop around for a lower interest rate, but be mindful of upfront costs.
  • Increase your down payment to lower the loan amount.
