Buying a home is the biggest financial decision you can make. Knowing your budget and how much you can afford to spend on a home is a critical – dare we say the most important – piece of information you can have going into the homebuying process.
So how do you know how much you can afford? Take into consideration these items listed to determine what your homebuying budget looks like.
Find out what you can afford
Use our online pre-approval tool to see how much you can afford.
First, you’ll need to gather some information about yourself:
- Your monthly income
- Monthly expenses and how much debt you owe each month
- How much you have saved for a down payment and closing costs
Then, you’ll need some information about the home you want to purchase:
- The price of the home you want to buy
- How much money you need for a down payment
- The length of the loan and current mortgage interest rates
Once you have a good grasp on these numbers, you’ll be able to estimate how much money you have each month for a mortgage payment. You can also use our mortgage calculator to see what home prices are within your budget!
