Can I afford to buy a 251k House? How much do I need to make to buy a $251000 home or apartment? Use this calculator to estimate how much of a mortgage you can get. This is a very rough estimate and many more factors go into mortgage underwriting. The easiest way to determine how much home you can afford is to speak with a mortgage banker and get a preapproval for a mortgage.
