re: What is the “normal” ratio of mortgage loan vs annual income? - LSUKTR on 2/23/21 at 3:17 pm
My personal rule for our first 3 houses was home value 2x income. I guess mortgage value may be a better way to measure. eta: we are dual income, so also have to run a sensitivity against single income in case my wife changed career or chose to stay home. That ultimately makes us have to be more...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

As of Friday, my previous mortgage wasn’t paid off, so I called the Title Co. they said they overnighted a chec...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
