# How Much House Can I Afford If I Make 40000 A Year??

Take a homebuyer who makes \$40,000 a year.

The maximum amount for monthly mortgage-related payments at 28% of gross income is \$933.

(\$40,000 times 0.28 equals \$11,200, and \$11,200 divided by 12 months equals \$933.33.)

### How much house can you afford if you make 80000 a year?

So, if you make \$80,000 a year, you should be looking at homes priced between \$240,000 to \$320,000. You can further limit this range by figuring out a comfortable monthly mortgage payment. To do this, take your monthly after-tax income, subtract all current debt payments and then multiply that number by 25%.

### How much house can I afford if I make 60000 a year?

The usual rule of thumb is that you can afford a mortgage two to 2.5 times your annual income. That’s a \$120,000 to \$150,000 mortgage at \$60,000. You also have to be able to afford the monthly mortgage payments, however.

### How much house do I qualify for?

Most lenders require that you’ll spend less than 28% of your pretax income on housing and 36% on total debt payments. If you spend 25% of your income on housing and 40% on total debt payments, they’ll consider the higher number and qualify you for a smaller amount as a result.

## How much house can you afford if you make 200 000 a year?

Simply take your gross income and multiply it by 2.5 or 3, to get the maximum value of the home you can afford. For somebody making \$100,000 a year, the maximum purchase price on a new home should be somewhere between \$250,000 and \$300,000.

### How much mortgage can I afford if I make \$100 000 a year?
