Maximum Monthly Mortgage

Banks do not like to give out loans that exceed 36% of a person's total income.
Total Income: $50,000
$50,000 / 12 = $4,166
$4,166 * .36 = $1,500
Car Payment + Mortgage < $1,500
$450 + Mortgage < $1,500
Mortgage < $1,050

This shows that $1,050 will be able to fit into my budget.

I used Capitol Federal's website to find an APR of 3.938% for a 30 year loan.

Using the finance app on my calculator, I found that the max loan I can take out is about $202,000.

My House

I found this house at www.reecenichols.com. It has an asking price of $195,000 which is well inside my budget. Using this as the loan I take out, the monthly payment would be $1,014.

Address: 2049 W 139th Terrace, Leawood Kansas, 66224

Increased Payment

$1,014 * 1.15 = $1,166

Using this as the monthly payment, the number of payments is reduced to 273, which is just under 23 years.

$1,014 as the monthly payment = $365,040 total paid

$1,166 as the monthly payment = $321,816 total paid

This would save you $43,224 by the time you fully paid off the loan.
