Step 1: Find out how much home you can afford. Knowing how much you can borrow and afford will keep your search focused on the right home for your budget.
Finding out how much you can afford even before you feel fully ready to purchase a home will give you a clear view of your buying power and a head start on what that goal number will be when it comes to saving for your down payment. Utilize our Home Affordability Calculator as a handy finance tool to get started. Simply input your annual income, monthly debt and expenses, and down payment to estimate the mortgage amount that will work for you and your budget.

Meeting with a Lennar Mortgage professional before applying will essentially gain you a savvy financial coach who will be in your corner and help get you in the best shape possible to purchase, all at no cost to you.
Step 3: The fun part, shop the market! Begin researching what type of home features and finishes, community amenities, and location you prefer.
