Find Out How Much Of a House You Can Afford

If you are looking to purchase a home in 2018, it is important to know how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can afford. Determining your budget can often be one of the first steps on your journey to home ownership.
  • Your mortgage is a long-term commitment, be sure you choose a payment range that will be comfortable throughout the years.
  • Determining a comfortable payment range will help limit your search to realistic home options.
  • Consider your other life goals - saving for retirement, starting or growing your family, starting a business, or travel - and make sure the payment will still allow you to live comfortably.
F&M Bank is here to help you determine your payment amount with our friendly home budget calculator. Click here!
