Just because a lender is willing to loan you a fortune doesn't mean you should take it. Buying more home than you can afford can quickly lead to financial trouble. As a rule of thumb, your mortgage payment should be less than 28 percent of your gross monthly income. Besides your mortgage payment, be prepared for the additional costs of homeownership, such as insurance, property taxes, utilities and maintenance. You may want to scale back the size of the home you're looking for in order to bring the whole package in line with your budget.

Check back this week as I will be going over how to add up a true picture of your monthly expenses and then how to add up a realistic budget for home related expenses (i.e. mortgage, insurance, utilities, etc.). 

Want to be entered in my monthly drawing for a chance to win a dinner for two at Tres Hombres???  It's easy!  Every week, for the next four weeks I will be entering in everyone who leaves a comment to my "Question of the week".  You can enter once a week, every week for the next four weeks.  I will also be giving out 5 "runner up" coupons for buy one margarita get one free at Trest Hombres!  Good luck, and don't forget to leave a comment regaurding the question below:
