What will my monthly costs be if I purchase Charleston, AR real estate? There are many different variables that go into determining the monthly cost of a home. The biggest is obviously the home price. But after the actual price of the home you will also need to consider the down payment, loan term, interest rate, property taxes, home insurance, HOA dues and PMI (private mortgage insurance). PMI payments can be avoided for homeowners that are able to put 20% or more towards a down payment. The mortgage calculator has preset default values for these details, but they may be adjusted to give you a more accurate monthly payment estimate. Keep in mind that a good rule of thumb is to keep the DTI (debt-to-income) ratio to no more than 36 percent. This means that no more than 36 percent of gross monthly income should go to paying all debts.
