Keep in mind, there are many other variables that may affect how much you can borrow from the bank and how much you can repay each month, which in turn impacts how much house you can buy.

• Down Payment - First of all, how much is your down payment? If you have saved a large amount of money and are planning to make a big down payment, you will be able to afford a nicer house than someone with a small down payment.

• Monthly Debt - Do you have any monthly debt such as your car loan, payment for child support, credit card debts, and so on.

• Annual Income - Obviously the more you make, the larger the mortgage you can apply. Banks will decide how much loan you qualify for based on your income.

• Credit Score - Your credit score determines the interest rate that you will be getting from the bank. The higher your credit score is, the lower the interest rate that you will expect to get. If you have a bad credit score, some banks might not take your business. Even if you do get a mortgage, you will probably need to pay a much higher interest rate than someone with a good credit score.

• Interest Rate - The interest rate determines how much you will be paying back to the bank each month. If your interest rate is high, you will need to pay a higher monthly payment which means you will have to buy a cheaper house.

• Mortgage Terms - Another variable that affects how much mortgage you can afford is the term. If you plan to apply for a 15-year term, you will have to buy a smaller house than if you were to get a 30-year term.

• Closing Costs - In addition to a down payment, and the monthly mortgage payments, you will also need to pay for closing costs. Closing costs vary from state to state, and lender to lender, it could be anywhere from 1.5% - 4% of the house price. Do you have money set aside for closing costs?

• Private Mortgage Insurance - If your down payment is less than 20%, banks will require you to pay for PMI, which is monthly mortgage insurance that you need to pay on top of your mortgage payments.

• Property Tax and Home Insurance - Each quarter, you need to pay for property tax, and pay home insurance each year.

• Home Repairs & Maintenance - Is the house that you like in good condition or do you have to spend extra money for renovation. There are also the costs of owning a house such as home repairs and maintenance that you need after you purchase a home.
