Whether you are looking at a condo in Coronado or a house in San Diego, buying a home usually involves obtaining a mortgage loan unless you are downsizing your home or have equity for the full purchase amount, in which case you would not need a loan. It is important to figure out just how much property you can afford to spend your money on as well as maintain without overstepping your budget so that you do not waste time looking at homes that you will not be able to support. A simple and critical thing to do is to plan ahead for typical expenses related to buying a home such as your utilities, property taxed, strata fees, maintenance expenses, and any obvious renovations if the house needs them.
The best recommendation Gerri-Lynn Fives can give is to get a pre-approved for financing by a mortgage professional at the very beginning of the home buying process. Along with my partnership between myself and local mortgage brokers and financial institutions in Coronado and the greater San Diego area ensure that you are getting the best rates available and will put you in a position of power by being a serious cash buyer.

The mortgage payment calculator below can help you get started in estimating what your monthly mortgage payments might be and how much you can afford to purchase a new home for. The maximum home price that you can afford depends on a number of factors including your household gross monthly income, your down payment and the mortgage interest rate. In addition to those factors, your monthly mortgage payment amount will also be affected by the total amortization period (or mortgage term) in years and the frequency of payment schedule (or payment interval) such as monthly, semi-monthly, or bi-weekly payments.
