    Depending on your income, debt, and assets, there are multiple models of mortgage payments. Keep in mind your other financial goals, debts, and monthly expenses when calculating your mortgage percentage. Here are a few of the common mortgage payment rules:

    • The 28% rule: According to this rule, you should put aside no more than 28% of your monthly gross income towards your mortgage payment.
    • The 35%/45% model: According to this model, your total monthly debt should not exceed 35% of your pre-tax income or 45% of your after-tax income.
    • The 25% post-tax model: According to this model, your total monthly debt should be less than or equal to 25% of your post-tax income.
