HOW MUCH HOUSE CAN YOU AFFORD?
Use this affordability calculator to determine how much house you can afford.
How much you can actually spend? The best way to know is to meet with a mortgage broker.
When a buyer applies for a mortgage, the lender provides a written commitment.
Sellers are more receptive to potential buyers who have been pre-approved.
