How do you calculate your repayment capacity?

Before you actively embark on your real estate project, find out how much you can borrow. Based on your monthly repayment capacity, the costs related to the project and the savings you want to invest in your project, Spuerkeess will establish your budget and financing plan with you. This will allow you to focus your search on properties that match your budget.

The different parts of the calculation

Your Housing Advisor will help you with the various parts of the calculation:

Your monthly repayment capacity

To calculate your monthly repayment capacity, your advisor will perform a calculation based on the following:

  • Your regular income (net salary, family allowances, etc.)
  • Your recurring expenses (existing loans, support payments, etc.)
  • The minimum budget you need to have available to live a comfortable life, depending on your financial position and family situation

Estimation of your budget

Based on your monthly repayment capacity, your advisor can make calculations linked to the length of the loan and the interest rate, to produce an initial estimate of your budget and the amount you can borrow.

Your financing plan

To produce your financing plan and determine how much you can actually borrow, the following information is required:

  • The purchase price or the price of the land and construction
  • All costs related to the project (renovations, architect or mortgage registration fees, etc.)
  • All of your income, such as equity, home savings or other sources of financing that you can invest in the project
