The answer really depends on how much of your monthly income you want to tie up into a mortgage payment. A quick rule of thumb is that the mortgage shouldn't be greater than 30% of your monthly pay. Ideally, you want to aim lower than that to allow for some breathing room for other debts, loans, and other unexpected cash requirements.
