Buying a home, but not sure what price range to look in?
First, determine what monthly payment you could comfortably manage. In general, you don't want to spend more than 30% of your monthly income on housing. You should also make sure to leave enough cash flow to cover other bills, debts, and expenses you might have.
Then, you can use a mortgage calculator to work backward and see what price range that puts you in. Don't forget you'll need cash upfront for the down payment and closing costs. You'll also want to factor in moving costs as well.
Finally, tap your agent and loan officer for more guidance.
