1. The Dave Ramsey Plan
- Summary is, make sure the home is a blessing
- Make you can afford it
- And let's try to pay it off fast
The Dave Ramsey Plan:
- Create a Budget; so list all your income and add them up to see how much you make monthly
- Then you; you right down every place your dollar goes to, basically all your expenses including the good ones like investing/saving and the bad ones like Uber eats ( but every penny should be accounted for )
- Once you're done that; time to figure out how much you can spend a month on a home, and the rule is no more than 25% of your monthly income including all the home expenses on a 15-year mortgage

So for Example:
- Let's say I make $6000 a month and I want to follow the Dave Ramsey plan
- I can only spend up to 25% or less, so that’s a budget of $1500 a month ( including Principle, Interest, Taxes, Insurance, and potentially an HOA fee )
- But important it's on a 15 years mortgage ( so the amount of house I can buy is for around $213k, and with a 20% down payment I need 42,600 in saving, and with a closing cost of 5% I might need $10,650 )

But it doesn’t Stop There:
- Because any extra money after you're done investing you should be throwing it at the mortgage
- That way you are don’t a lot faster
- And also save even more money in interest

Extra Tips: give your budget room to grow, so if you plan on having kids, you might want to buy a cheaper house and save up for the kid's expenses for the first year.

2. Everything Wrong with this Plan
- Tell you the truth; just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. For example how much money the bank will give you
- Requires patient in savings; saving up 20% down payment is tough work, but if you want to do it the right way, then its worth it to avoid the mortgage insurance
- You want a nicer House; but that you need to increase your income, or just wait until you build more passive income

Real concerns:
- This plan is very-very conservative but if you want to have peace of mind it works
- However, you can get away with 33% of your monthly income, and then throwing an extra 15% of your income towards the mortgage to finish faster ( but that’s going to take a lot of sacrifices)
- If you want a 30-year mortgage just in case, it could work but why to run the risk to increase your expenses (it's better to just have an emergency fund of 3-6 months to help you help get back on your feet )

3. Overall
- This plan is solid but it's conservative
- You finish a lot faster
- Build equity faster
- Save a lot more on interest

My plan would be similar:
- Instead, I would raise it from 25% to 33%
- And instead of throwing extra month ( I would recommend 10-15% extra towards the mortgage)
- But I have to agree you shouldn’t buy a house you cant afford, just the bank told you its okay to do it.

Tip: he also recommends a minimum of 10% but a 20% is best to avoid mortgage insurance
