How Much Home Can You Afford? Calculator

Before you start looking for your next home, it's important to determine exactly how much home you can afford. Mortgage lenders look beyond your income and factor in insurance, taxes, inspections, to your personal financial situation.

When you're buying a home, mortgage lenders don't look just at your income, assets, and the down payment you have. They look at all of your liabilities and obligations as well, including auto loans, credit card debt, child support, potential property taxes and insurance, and your overall credit rating. Use this calculator to determine how much of a mortgage you may be able to obtain.
