New construction cost without lot is around $75-$100 for modest finishes. Current market values locally are about the same for more "custom" homes. $127k sounds plenty fair.

FourbyFour your inbox is full...

here is the budget/mortgage calc i had setup, it's pretty straight forward.

all of the yellow boxes can be edited and will automatically calculate.

on the budget side, use take home pay, and then monthly expenses.

on the mortgage side I have it set up so you just have to put in the home price, APR, annual taxes and annual home owners insurance.

it automatically uses a down payment of 20% to avoid PMI.

Just a heads up, there is a (I think this is the correct amount) 3,000 Va loan funding fee. Nobody told us of that when we purchased our house. I just wanted ti give you a heads up if you were unaware as well. Congrats on your purchase.

You guys locked a rate yet? They're creeping up on us again. Should be in the 4.5% range on a 30yr fixed VA w/a FICO of 600 or higher.
