Our calculations are based on what some lending institutions think you can afford. When considering how much you
can afford based on your salary, we are not only calculating what the mortgage payments will be.
We also include property tax, insurance, how much cash you have for the down payment, and even other debts, such as
car loans or credit card payments. However, be aware that everyone's situation is different. You may have more
or less expenses, fluctuating income, or other circumstances that make our assumptions not applicable
to your particular situation. If you prefer not to enter your salary above, check out our
