Houses are expensive. Probably the largest purchase you’ll ever make. That’s why very few prospective homeowners have enough cash on hand to purchase a home outright. Instead, most home buyers seek financing—a mortgage—to cover the difference between what they’ve saved and what they need to buy a home.
WHAT’S MY PRICE RANGE?
Determining how much house you can reasonably afford, and the size of your mortgage, requires carefully evaluating:
- Savings—how much have you set aside to cover a down payment on your home, as well as your closing costs?
- Affordability—how much can you safely borrow, and still meet all your financial obligations?
