Do you wonder how falling interest rates affect your buying power for your next house? Home Buying Power is a tool that helps you quickly determine how much house you or your client can afford. This is an essential tool for the Real Estate Professional or the home shopper to quickly focus a home search on the right price point. By entering in your desired payment or your income percentage, your down payment, loan term and interest rate, Home Buying Power helps you calculate the price point of homes you can afford. With current market conditions requiring higher down payments, many people are down payment limited. By entering in the required down payment percentage for the market you are in, Home Buying Power can analyze whether your desired payment is consistent with your available down payment. If you are down payment limited, Home Buying Power will tell you, and give you the payment amount for the maximum priced home you can afford based on your down payment.Home Buying Power also includes a powerful mortgage payment calculator with a "Detail" view that includes fields for the properties MLS # and address.
