Explore What You Can Afford

First National Bank is a community bank that offers personalized service for its customers. We sincerely want to help our customers understand the homebuying process, identify the best mortgage solution, and obtain a loan that is affordable based on their unique situation.

Factors that Impact Affordability

Woman with questionsWhen it comes to calculating affordability, there are several factors to take into consideration, including determining a sensible housing budget and monthly mortgage payment. Your personal savings goals, spending habits, income, debts, and amount you’ve saved for your down payment are some of the additional items to consider.  

The interest rate (amount that the bank charges a borrower for taking out a loan) and loan term (length by which you agree to pay back the home loan, such as 15 or 30 years), are other aspects in the affordability equation.

First National Bank’s mortgage lenders understand that a customer’s ability to comfortably manage their monthly payments and repay the money they plan to borrow remain the most important factors when determining affordability. Your mortgage payment should never make you feel stressed out or concerned you might not make ends meet each month.

“When I meet with clients about a new construction mortgage loan, we spend time talking about their personal financial goals, needs, and current obligations. I then recommend a loan product that would fit their scenario and discuss rates and terms. At First National Bank, we care about the long-term relationships with our clients and want everyone who obtains a loan to leave the bank feeling comfortable about their decisions,” said Senior Vice President Cindy Wirth.
