How Much Home Can I Afford?
Real Estate Mortgage Calculator
Oftentimes, first time home buyers in 2018 experience sticker shock after seeing what their total monthly mortgage and incidental costs will be simply because they didn't factor in the costs of property taxes, mortgage insurance (if using certain home buyer programs); hazard insurance (fire, flood, etc) and general maintenance and upkeep.
It is imperative that once every first time home buyer has gotten a pre-approval from a reputable lender, identified and negotiated a property using a professional Realtor, that they obtain an approximate estimate of the above sums to determine true affordability. Some home buyers will find they can afford a lot more home than what they initially thought, while others will realize they were not nearly as accurate in determining in their monthly costs as they should've been.
