HOW MUCH HOME CAN I AFFORD?

Great question.  There is what the lender says you can afford and then there is what you are comfortable affording.

The easiest to use mortgage calculator is the one at Zillow or for a more accurate assessment of what you can afford and current interest rates contact my favorite lender Dustin Birrell at dustin@neighborhoodloans.com
