Financing in Lake Isabella>Question Details

Lisa Crafton, Home Buyer in Lake Isabella, CA

When applying for a loan how do I know how much to apply for? I figured what I could afford & put 20% of that away,my credit union is 3%.

Asked by Lisa Crafton, Lake Isabella, CA Thu Aug 9, 2012

Using a mortgage calculator I came up with $45,000.00 ,before the down,that would be doable but tight every month so I'm looking for something more in the $35,000.00 range. I don't want to ask for too little andI also don't want to ask for too much and not qualify.

The Mortgage Company will tell you how much you could qualify for, MAX.
They will review your documents and give the maximum that you qualify for;
Then you will decide if you are comfortable with that monthly payment and total debt.

Then you tell your Realtor the price range you want to look at;
and your Realtor finds possibles for you.

You may want to ask the lender what they will lend you and use their answer to guide your property search.
