How much can you comfortably afford?

Ask about my listings!It’s important to start out by knowing what mortgage you can comfortably afford. You should meet with a lender or mortgage broker to establish how much of a mortgage you can actually qualify for. Going through the mortgage pre-qualification process before you begin your home search will bring your house hunting into focus and give you a better idea of the homes that fit into your price range.

Not only that, mortgage rates vary considerably and it is obviously to your short- and long-term advantage that you shop around for the best rate, terms and options.

You don’t want to sacrifice lifestyle for a house. Determine how much of a home (mortgage) you can afford by considering the following and doing your homework. You won’t regret it!

  • Your annual household income
  • Your down-payment (you should have 5% of the purchase price (up to $500k) of the home for the down payment, but ideally even more)
  • Your debt-load
  • Your interest rate
  • Your monthly mortgage payment
  • Your amortization period (length of time required to pay off the loan)
  • Your closing costs
  • Your property taxes
  • Your homeowner’s insurance
  • Your home maintenance costs

A good place to begin is with an affordability calculator. It will help you determine the maximum mortgage you can afford and will give you an idea of what monthly mortgage payment to expect.

Click Buying – Step 3: Calculate Your Costs for more detailed information. If you’d like to discuss mortgage affordability call 403-932-4433 to arrange an appointment.

Household Tip of the Month

Maximize your energy savings (lower monthly bills!) without sacrificing comfort. Install a programmable thermostat that can be set to automatically turn heat on and off. Lower the temperature at night or while you’re at school/work and return it to the desired setting before you wake or arrive home. They’re easy to install. All you need is a few simple tools and about 20 minutes!
