 Buying a home in beautiful Upstate NY can be a rewarding experience! Before you start this adventure, it's smart and advantageous to know what you can afford.

First, it will tell you how much house you can afford and what your monthly payments would be.

Second, it tells the seller that you can afford to buy their home. By definition, a pre-approved buyer  has an approved mortgage subject to an appraisal of the property. Many times a buyer can use this pre-approved status as leverage during the negotiation process.
