The Johnsons have accumulated a nest egg of 40,000 that they intend to use as a down payment toward the purchase of a new house. Because their present gross income has placed them in a relatively high tax bracket, they have decided to invest a minimum of 2400/month in monthly payments toward the purchase of their house. However because of other financial obligations, their monthly payments should not exceed 3000. if local mortgage rates are 8%/year compounded monthly for a conventional 30-yr mortgage, what is the price range of houses that they should consider?
