How much home can we afford?Hi guys, my girlfriend and I are planning on buying a home within the next couple of months in north NJ (Union City, North Bergen, etc). We are probably going to go the condo route since we can't find any nicer homes in our price range in the area. I know there are calculators online but I wanted to see if anyone one here, an actual person, could help us figure out how much house we can afford after all expenses are taken into account. Let us know what information you need from us. I have been pre-approved for a 300k loan without including my girlfriend and that is the price point we have been looking at when searching for a home. My income is about 72k/year and her's is 45k. Any help is greatly appreciated.
