When it comes to beginning the process of finding and buying a home, many people want to get an estimate of how much home they can afford. Our handy home financing calculators can give you a rough idea.
Because buying a home is expensive, many people need to save money for a down payment, as well as to prepare for other homeownership costs, such as:
- Lender closings costs.
- Third party fees such as appraisal, title, and credit report fees.
- And the necessary insurance coverages such as homeowners' insurance and possibly flood insurance.
You may also want to put money aside for:
- Emergency fund (to cover unforeseen expenses)
In addition to financing, we offer a variety of ways to help you save your money for your dream home.
