Your top mortgage questions answered

Each buyer is unique. The biggest factors in determining your price range are typically your monthly income and your financial obligations. It’s simple to make an estimate; just run the numbers for yourself using our Affordability Calculator.
That depends on a number of factors, including:

  • How long you think you’ll stay in the home
  • How much money you’ll put down
  • How you’ll finance the closing costs
Yes. Getting pre-approved lets you know how much home you can buy before you go house hunting. Plus, it lets realtors and sellers know that you’re a serious buyer because your financing is already arranged—which can be an advantage when making an offer.
An appraisal compares the current market value of the home you’d like to buy to other homes in the area that have recently been sold. Tax values can sometimes be higher or lower and may not reflect the actual appraised value of the home. A recent appraisal is necessary to confirm the property’s current value. You should not, however, rely on the appraisal as a warranty for assurance about the condition of the home or its value.
An appraiser will contact you to make an appointment to access the property for an appraisal. Once the appraisal is complete, the appraiser will send the results directly to the lender. A copy of the appraisal will be provided to you.
