How Much Mortgage Can You Afford?

Ready For Your Dream Home?

Not Sure What You Can Afford?

I always suggest that, before going out looking at houses, buyers talk with a lender and get a better idea of what they can afford.  They can also begin the approval process so that when they find their dream home, they are ready to make a move on it.  With a conditional loan approval - usually conditioned upon an appraisal of the house they decide on and an update of their financial position - they can go in with a much stronger offer and shorten the time period for final approval.  This will be much more appealing to a seller than someone who has not even begun the loan process.  It will also avoid any heartache on the buyers' side if they are turned down for a loan because they thought they could afford more than they really could.

In order to prepare you for this process, read this article from the National Association of Realtors - 4 Tips To Determine How Much Mortgage You Can Afford

Absolutely, sometimes they're surprised that they can look at higher priced homes and other times they maybe should wait another year.
