New home? How much can you really afford?

Before you attend a single open house or read a single real estate ad, let us help you create a realistic price range.

Buying a home is probably the largest, most complex purchase you'll ever make. Because of this, it can be easy to get in over your head financially, if you don't account for all the costs that go into owning a home. Our tool can help you become a smarter home shopper by helping you better understand private mortgage insurance, maintenance costs, property taxes, homeowner's insurance, and other important costs.
