With the real estate market growing stronger, you may be considering buying your own home. Buying your house is probably going to be the largest purchase you will ever make, so it’s not something to take lightly. If you are currently renting a home or apartment, and you can comfortably afford your rent, then you may think that you can afford a mortgage with the same monthly payment. That’s a common misconception, but there is more to home buying than just the monthly mortgage payment. Before you start looking for a home of your own, you need to know if you can afford the costs of ownership.
