If you are getting ready to buy a home, there are a lot of questions swimming around in your head.

You may be wondering how big a house you need. Of course, that would depend on the size of your family. But not just the size of your family today. You need to consider the size of your family in the future.

If you have children, school districts are an important question.

Depending on where you work, and how far you want to commute, location is obviously a key factor.

There are additional factors to consider as well. But the one overwhelming consideration often overlooked, or at least not studied carefully enough, is how much home can I afford.

This article, written by personal finance and legal writer Christy Rakoczky and published by lendedu, clearly answers all the questions for you when you are making this decision, arguably the biggest one you will  make in your life.

I recommend you read it carefully.
