While you may have a clear picture of your dream house, understanding what you can afford may be foggy. That’s why we have a mortgage calculator available. It’s a fast and easy way to calculate your home-purchasing budget in just seconds.
It’s imperative to have a financial plan before you start house hunting. Too many homeowners have struggled with serious debt—and even foreclosure—because they bought a home they loved but couldn’t afford. Our mortgage payment calculator will help define your budget.
Once you’ve used our handy mortgage calculator, you may have a few questions about where to go from here. Below are some guidelines to help you stay within budget:
- Get pre-qualified for a mortgage before you look at homes. Your mortgage options will give you a clear picture of what you can and can’t afford.
- Don’t look at houses that are above your budget; it’s too tempting.
- Don’t allow realtors to talk you into raising your budget. You’ve set it so you can be in the best financial situation possible; make sure you stick to it.
