Make sure you understand how much you might pay. Most house-hunters focus on the overall price. But in reality, it's the monthly payment that affects your budget the most. The selling price is one factor, but so are down payment size, loan interest rate and loan length. Also, in many cases, your homeowners insurance and property taxes are rolled in as well. This calculator lets you see how it all adds up to what you'll pay for housing each month.
The price of your new house is just the starting point.
