updated February, 2015

SALE PRICE LIMITS (approximate calculations – see notes below)

 Baltimore COUNTY and other moderate tax jurisdictions:

   Family of 1…..$190000
   Family of 2…..$217000
   Family of 3…..$244000
   Family of 4…..$270000

 Baltimore CITY and other higher tax jurisdictions:

   Family of 1…..$168000
   Family of 2…..$192000
   Family of 3…..$216000
   Family of 4…..$240000

These are the maximum likely sale prices that will keep qualifying ratios at 45 percent while still staying under FHLB income limits based on estimated payments using current FHA rates for buyers with monthly debt payments about 10% of monthly gross pay. These numbers are a general guide to determine if a property price could be eligible for the program. Property taxes and insurance have been estimated. Buyers with lower debts may qualify for more house and buyers with higher debt payments will qualify for less house. Income limits are higher for larger family sizes over four. The largest source of error stems from assessed value differing from list price.

Annual Income Limits:
$44,750(single person) – $51,100(family of 2) – $57,500(family of 3) – $63,900(family of 4)
