Your thoughts are greatly appreciated :) http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-we-afford-this-home-Your-thoughts-are-greatly-appreciated/553041/ Here are the details:<br/><br/>Principal &amp; Interest Payment = 17% of our Net Realized (after tax) income<br/>Principal &amp; Interest Payment + Prop Taxes + Homeowners Insurance = 29% of our Net Realized (after tax) income<br/>Principal &amp; Interest Payment + Prop Taxes + Homeowners Insurance + All Other Monthly Expenses = 50% of our Net Realized (after tax) income. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Based on the above, my wife and I would have 50% of our net realized (after tax) income left to save. &nbsp;Is this good? &nbsp;<br/><br/>If we get the house, my thoughts are that after a few months we can lower our net realized (after tax) income by putting more money into our retirement, college savings plan. &nbsp;We can also put money aside so my wife can eventually take more than 3 months off once we have kids. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Please let me know your thoughts and if I can provide any additional info.<br/><br/>Thanks so much for your time.<br/><br/>Sincerely,<br/>Okinawa17<br \><br \>7 replies Mon, 04 Aug 2014 20:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-we-afford-this-home-Your-thoughts-are-greatly-appreciated/553041/ 2014-08-04T20:12:00Z Home Valuation http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Home-Valuation/390583/ My home is currently in Garden City but it is being compared to homes in Franklin Square which I believe bring down the value.
