What Can I Afford? -
Use this Mortgage Calculator to check your affordability index.

What Should I Pay? -
What have the average asking prices been compared to the average selling prices. At any given time you agent should be able to tell you what the average sale price is below listing price.

This will give you an indication of where you might end up conpared to the price the seller is asking. Your agent should also provide you with a list of recent sales (and current listings) in the neighborhood of any house you might be considering buying.

How to Get a Mortgage - Please, Please consider a local lender for your mortgage. It is not possible to tell you all of the horror stories we hear from our customers who go to "the big banks" or " Our hometown branch of a National Bank". These big national banks just really don't care about you. They'll have some smoo sitting in Texas processing your loan who could not care that you have $5 million deposited with their institution in NY. They have 50 applications on their desk to go over today and will get to yours "whenever". Of the last 3 buyer's who used a "big bank" ALL 3 told us they would NEVER do it again.
