Important Note:  The amounts calculated above do not account for insurance, taxes, or monthly fees that might be part of your monthly payment.  Property tax is usually either a percentage of the sales price or a percentage of assessed value; check with your local tax authority for rates and calculation methods in your area.  Prices for insurance vary based upon coverage desired; check with an insurance company for quotes on homeowner policies.  Homeowners association fees can be obtained either from the seller or from association management.

You can roughly estimate what your total monthly payment might be by entering a purchase price, property tax rate, insurance amount, and any other fees you might incur in the boxes below.

Enter an estimated purchase price for your new home.  Remember that it is likely to be an amount greater than the amount you intend to borrow (you must supply a down payment for the difference between the purchase price and the mortgage).
Enter the property tax rate for your area as a number between .1% (.1) and 99% (99).  Property tax rates generally range from .5% to 2% across the country.
Estimate your annual cost of insurance.  Policies range from $100-2,000 depending upon the size, type, and location of home and the type of coverage desired.  If you live in a hazard area, don't forget to include the cost of hazard insurance.
If you will be paying homeowners association or other fees, estimate your monthly fee.
