Millions of Americans are in mortgages they can’t afford. Dave Ramsey always recommends a 15-year fixed rate mortgage. To get a loan or refinance, use his trusted experts: https://www.daveramsey.com/recommends/mortgage-loans
In this video, Dave Ramsey answers Robert’s question, “If you live in a large metropolitan area like southern California, how can you afford a 15 year mortgage?”
Dave tells Robert that even though he has his 3-6 month emergency fund saved, he should only look for a home that’s no more than 25% of his take home pay. If he can’t afford the payment on a 15 year term then he needs to move. People who have a house payment that is more than 30% of their take home pay have a hard time prospering financially. Robert should consider living in a more affordable area nearby with a commute, or moving to a different area that will allow him the right payment so that he can save and invest. You shouldn’t let the house own you.
