Can I afford to buy a 254k House? How much do I need to make to buy a $254000 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.

This calculator starts with a fixed 30 year mortgage with current interest rates. Different loan lengths, such as a 15 year fixed, or a different APR will affect mortgage affordability.
