The average mortgage in Ohio or West Virginia
Ohio and West Virginia are among the states with the lowest average monthly mortgage payments in the country. Lenders, however, have a ceiling of 28 percent of your monthly income for your monthly mortgage payment. This means that the if average Social Security check of $1,301.59 is your only source of income, your mortgage payment should not exceed $364.45.
As a result, even with a low mortgage of $793 in Ohio, you would still require double or even more than the average Social Security benefit to be able to cover all your payments. On the other hand, a mortgage in Washington, D.C., or Hawaii will leave you without $2,718 and $2,916, respectively.
