How to calculate your budget
As a general rule, you should contribute equity of 20 to 30 percent of the property price to finance your new home. Equity includes, for example, your account balance, the shares of your home savings contracts and investments in securities and shares. Also, make a list of your monthly income and expenses. Also, take into account the house money you will pay for your apartment each month. This will ultimately give you a sense of how much money you can invest in financing.
Include ancillary purchase costs
When asking how much the condominium should cost, many people forget about the ancillary costs of purchase. These consist of notary and land registry costs, land transfer tax and ancillary financing costs and total around 15 percent of the property price.
