Your mortgage affordability depends on your income, debts and credit score. Our calculator includes carrying costs such as heat, condo fees and property taxes to get an extensive view on how much you can afford.

Lenders look at GDS and TDS to help determine how much mortgage you can borrow.

How much down payment you have also helps determine maximum affordability. If it's under than 20% then mortgage insurance costs need to be considered.

Closing costs aren't necessarily a big influence in affordability but it's good to keep that in mind for money you need to set aside, along with your down payment.

To increase how much you can afford, it's best to:

  • Improve your credit score to get a better rate
  • Reduce your monthly payments towards your debts
  • Save for a larger down payment (perhaps at least 20% to save on mortgage insurance fees)
